THE NEIGHBOR CAUGHT ME

Yesterday I was in the chicken house gathering eggs. We have a long driveway and we have a blacktop road in front of the house. I can always hear vehicles coming and make it in the house before they can turn in our drive. Why would I need to be on alert? Because once in a while I run outside without my wig or a cap. Yesterday was one of those days and how our neighbor with a very noisy truck managed to pull up to our door without warning is beyond me.

There I was with a basket full of eggs and my bald head exposed to the world. Should I step out and greet the guest or duck down inside the pen? I simply stood up straight and walked out as if nothing was wrong, greeted the man and invited him to come in and have a seat in the den while I found Ron. The neighbor followed me with mouth agape and didn't say a word.

What could he say? The man has no teeth.

  3. I'm in Savannah, GA and we are resting in our hotel room. We had a long and tiring day.... oh, and enjoyable too. I love this city!!
    I love that you just stepped right up to that guy and invited him in. I'm sure his gummed grin has caught your attention just as much as your bald head caught his. He was most likely wondering if you were undergoing chemo, but when you saw his lack of teeth you KNEW that was not by some unavoidable medical problem. The guy hasn't been disciplined enough to use a toothbrush!!!
    Your post really cracked me up!

    Those chicks are SO cute!!!

  4. Great post! I think it pays to be bold, no matter what your situation is, and I admire you for going about your business the way you did. Bald can be beautiful, but no teeth? I don't think that's too cute.
