Busted and Miscellaneous Adventures

06 Sep

Hello sweet friends – I hope you had a wonderful LONG weekend with Labor Day.  Labor Day the unofficial last day of Summer.  I only wish it was true in the weather department as well.  Because why?  Because it’s still hotter than you know what here in the South.  Don’t get me wrong.  This past weekend was absolutely beautiful – cooler weather, lower humidity and slight winds.  It was *almost* like a wonderful fall day.  In fact, mom even slipped some Pumpkin Spice coffee in there in places.  That just screams fall, right?

Then there was yesterday with daddy.  When we have leftover bread – you know when the bread becomes a rock and you can almost kill someone with it – (snorts with piggy laughter) dad will throw it out in the front yard for birds and other night creature anipals to eat.  You know they have to eat too.  Well yesterday he and mom were fixing to go off so he throws the bread out.  That’s when mom says things got out of control.  It was like the movie Jurassic Park where all of those little pesky velociraptors came running across the fields at people.

That’s right – Chicken Run was back in the hood.  They came running from next door (of course) and tackled the leftover bread like there was no tomorrow.  At one point, mom said she counted EIGHT of them.  Shakes piggy head.  I lost count at two… that is two for a chicken snack on the run – HA!  Nah, I couldn’t hurt the chicks.  I’ve kind of gotten attached to them.  And of course the neighbor stills insists, “I don’t have chickens”.  Okay then.  I guess they just ‘hang out’ in your backyard every day/night.  I guess this brings new meaning to free range chickens.  Snorts with piggy laughter – I kill myself!

Now I want to share a story with you.  A story from the heart.  I know I talk about my humans going off unattended all of the time and them getting into trouble.  But sometimes their adventures don’t end up in trouble.  You see over the long weekend, daddy had a craving for these things called Krystals.  The are little petite hamburgers that are square and wonderful.  Kind of similar (I’m told) to White Castles but mom says they’re better.  I wouldn’t know because I’ve not tried the comparison.

So mom takes daddy to the restaurant and they decide to eat there which they normally don’t.  But mom just had a ‘feeling’ they needed to eat there and she had a coupon for a gazillion Krystals.  Okay maybe not a gazillion but quite a few.  She told dad that it was an excellent buy and she was going to get that many because he could eat them during the week.  Now we all know that women get these feelings called women’s intuition.  You should always go with that feeling – and your first instincts.  So mom/dad are eating their meal and they are done.  They have leftovers, of course.  That’s when a man came into the restaurant that got mom’s attention.

You could tell this man had been through some tough times by his attire.  He went to the counter and they turned him away.  That’s when the light bulbs went off in mom’s head and she starting shaking her head.  She knew now why she needed to eat at the restaurant and order so much food.  The man looked defeated from being turned away at the counter.  Mom got up, walked up front and got another french fry order and large drink.  During this time, the staff at the restaurant had told the man that he had to leave.  Mom said, “No, he’s a paying patron and he’s eating.”  She then invited the man over to dine with her and dad.

You learn so much about people just with a single act of kindness.  This meal made this man’s day.  Mom/dad sat with him and talked with him and laughed with him.  At the end of the meal, he asked how much he owed.  Mom said, “Nothing.  It’s paid in full just by you joining us and making our day with your company.”

    since today I have a new hero: YOUR MOM! people like your mama make this world to a better place and they bring not only a meal to a man in need they also bring hope that we should carry on to work on that world….
    btw: bro, maybe that chickens are the leftovers from Alfred Hitchcocks berd-movie? I mean they can not fly like eagles and therefore they couldn’t make the way back to howl-i-wood and will stay with you furever&ever… and with the chickenless neighbor of course ;o)

    Your mom is a great hero, the story made my cry, think how much it ment for that man, not only the food, your mom made him feel accepted.
    And I think now you have the chickens, because they are not you neighbor’s.

      aaww thanks sweet friend. Those chickens have no home nor address and although the neighbor claims they are not his.. I think he is lying. They sure do waddle over to his house quick enough for safety… not that I was chasing them or anything… looking innocently. XOXO – Bacon

        You should round them up, hide them well, and then eat some big fat chicken leg on the front porch. (Of course not from the still alive chicken, which are hidden safely!) Let’s see who comes complaining then!

        Snorts with piggy laughter. Now *that* sounds like a plan my friend. I shall tell mom about this tonight. Evil snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        Of course, no harm should come to the chicken – because somebody IS the rightful owner … so if you lure them you rather make sure they get fed properly till the owner comes to fetch them.

    This story made our day, Bacon! My hu-mom got teary-eyed reading this (I’m just a dog, so I don’t get teary-eyed very often). Your mom & pops are tops, and so are you. We need more people like you folks in this world, that’s for sure! ~ Wags and woofs, Kona and Lori-mom

      Thanks my sweet friend. Mom says we should treat everyone in the world like we want to be treated. I couldn’t even fuss at mom/dad when they didn’t bring me home leftovers after I heard this story. XOXO – Bacon

      Mom said the same thing! I know businesses must get plenty of people that come in – especially in the hood that mom/dad were in. But come on, common decency should be priority. For a while, that man was held with the most upright respect. He laughed. They joked. And the appreciation in his eyes is all the thanks mom/dad needed that day. XOXO – Bacon

    OMGoodness, B. That is the sweetest story ever. I’m happy your mom listened to her intuition. She turned that man’s day around and reminded him that there are genuinely good people in the world.

    Love and licks,

    Oh Bacon, I am afraid I would have just handed the man the bag with the extra Krystals. Your Mom went way beyond that – bless her!

      Aaww. Thank you. If only for a few minutes mom wanted him to feel special. XOXO – Bacon

    Free-range chickens–no kidding! So glad Mom and Dad didn’t get into any trouble. I’d say that made up for any previous problems.

      You know we are all the same. Mom said she didn’t think twice about it. He needed a friend and she was glad to step in for a while. The world definitely needs more of this for sure. XOXO – Bacon
