Mule Variations, and Angels on Halloween.

A day that could have been a breeze had the wind been in the direction where I was the plowman was another that had me as the mule. At times I had to work my furrow along the ditch line. I didn't mind it, I take what comes my way. The first half of the day was filled with conversations and phone calls then the wind picked up and I sat by the side of the road to write the gibberish of the previous post and had visits from many more as I sat there. When we made our way to town we were walking by the motel and were invited for a cookout by some traveling construction workers who had their gas grill filling the parking lot with the aroma of meat. Nice (the dog) was soon so full he could eat no more. It had become dark before I ventured to the south end of West Point. Just as we reached a shopping center that has a bar I was about to go inside to ask if I could stay in the parking lot when a good person with her daughter and friend suggested I go just a few steps more to the discount store parking lot and stay there. She went ahead and asked if I could stay there and, thankfully, gave us a ride back to Beemer. It never ceases to amaze me how at the end of the day when I have no ride or a place to stay that a car full of road angels appears. I got back with van and had the lights of the parking lot to do some touch up and am now settling in for the night as the bar in the distance is filling with Halloween party zombies. Again, if not for the angels...
