The gravel was actually in really great shape considering the fresh snow we got the other night. There were a few icy ruts, but nobody went down to my knowledge.
Jeff likes bananas, Wills likes cheese sticks, DK likes hot dogs, Troy likes...?
Valpo was on the menu again today. We've been there a lot this year. I'm sure Tvrdy's enjoys the extra income. I went for the 16 oz. coffee and the day old donut...90 cents. Ah yeah.
Had a motorist shake her head at us today while heading towards Valpo on Main Road (gravel). Yeah, we're nuts....or is it you, Miss Motorist, who is crazy?
The group splintered on the way back to town. That's pretty much the norm nowadays. Unfortunately, the NW 112th Street Border Collie wasn't home today. Next week buddy!
So, the other night I was eating dinner and watchin' TV. Ruka, the D Street Queen, was freakin' out at the living room window. She does this all the time. She'll see another cat, raccoon, dog, squirrel, or whatever and sprint from window to window getting a look. She'll even scratch the window and hiss if the critter hangs around for awhile. Well, this was the case on Thursday. She was scratchin' at the window for 20 to 30 minutes, so I finally decided to take a look. What did I see? A half frozen guinea pig huddled against the brick wall of the apartment complex next door paralyzed in fear.
I knew it wouldn't survive the night with the all the cats in the hood and with snow in the forecast, so I went out to rescue the critter. The little guy came right to me when I knelt down and put my hand out. The thing was shakin' little an old Maytag. Poor little guy.
So now I've got a guinea pig that I gotta get rid of. Signs have gone up in the hood, but I haven't gotten a call yet. I asked a resident next door, but no luck.
Did someone let it go or did it escape? Maybe it's got lice or it bite it's owner. Who knows. All I know is that I'm not much of a guinea pig kinda guy, so if I don't find a home by Monday it's going to the neighborhood Animal Rescue. Unfortunately, no one on today's ride wanted it. Maybe John would like it for his Birthday!
Seriously, if you want it, shoot me an email. He/she is super chill and poops a lot.
