Not risking anything if you’re having a good time. Everyone deserves a day like that. Oh Jesus, family stuff, work stuff, like stuff…just stuff, ya know? Lots of it.
I tend to disagree with that, but if I don’t get out of this house for a while, my head will start spinning. Sounds like you deserve a day like that yourself. Want to hang out or… something?
This is the best time of year, really. Me? Not too bad, all things considered. What about you, Al?
It is, and I think that I should probably get out there and lose myself for a day but that’d just be risking it, wouldn’t it? All things considered? What’s going on?
If you ever need anything, any help, you can give me a call. Replace the sweet tea with a bud light and that’s all you missed yesterday. Can you slip away to enjoy the day this afternoon?
Thank you. I appreciate it. I try not to complain too much because I remember that momma didn’t ask for all of this, but it’s hard sometimes. Oh, really? Well that’s a relief. I’m hoping to. I need a little relaxation time, you know? I kind of want to go to a concert, but I’d have to go to Atlanta…
Not that I am aware of. I spend my afternoon out on the lake. I hope your mother is feeling better!
She’s a little better today, but she’s never 100% anymore. Ah, what I’d give to have a sweet tea, an inner tube and the hot sun of the day beating down on me.
Nothin’ worth writin’ home about
S’pose that’s good to hear. I just didn’t go outside. I wanted to. The weather is so beautiful… how are you?
Momma wasn’t doin’ too well yesterday, so I stayed home with her and tried to make her comfortable. Anything interesting happen?
Silas set the old guitar down and got up from the steps of the porch. Dusting his hands off, he smirks a bit only then to direct his arms to cross over his chest. “Miss Alice, you ain’t just walked five miles outta town for some walk down my dirt road. You’re here ta see ma horses aren’t ya?” Silas’ head tilts a bit, still chuckling. “That guitar? Oh it ain’t nothin’..Geneva’s been makin’ me learn and I’ll tell ya Miss Alice, my fingers been bleedin’.”
Most people looked at Alice and thought that they read her like a book. However, they were normally wrong — aside from Silas. She had tried to cover up her curiosity, but he knew far too well that she was hear for the animals. “You caught me!” A soft giggle slid from her pale, pink lips before she took a few steps towards him. “Sorry… you know me. Animals are my thing, and well, daddy won’t let anything on four legs come in that front door. I tried bringin’ a fish in the other day — he said to take it to the pond, nothin’ with a fin could come in either,” She sighed deeply, a hint of disappointment in her eyes. “Can you play me somethin’?” With that, the girl was sitting on one of the porch steps, looking up at Silas. “Sing me a song?”
When I was younger, I actually planned on buying a horse. I’ve always wanted to be a true cowboy…
Plus I really dislike the landlord. I have a cat who has no name. I found him wanderin’ around the apartment building and offered him milk. I think he likes me, not sure. I found him six years ago. How can you tell if a cat likes you?
I hope everythin’ goes well with the puppies! German Shepards are really beautiful dogs.
I could definitely see that! You’ve got the looks of a cowboy. All you need is the straw hat and a ranch. Hey, you’ve got a long life ahead of you. Maybe you’ll be a cowboy after all, yeah?
Most landlords are pretty rude from what I’ve heard. I’ve yet to move out and figure that out on my own, but momma says they’re all crooks. He probably does like you. After all, you gave him milk when he was thirsty. An animal loves those who care for it. Well, as long as he comes around you and doesn’t bite your lil’ fingers off, I think he likes you! Thank you, though. I hope so too. They deserve loving, caring, forever homes and I intend to find them all one.
Silas plucked slowly on the strings of his guitar, seeming not to pay attention to the melodic song he was creating. Other things were on his mind; his father, new horse he’s yet to train, your footsteps abrupting his thoughts.. He stops plucking and turns to face you. “Can I help ya? What’re ye doin’ on my ranch?”
Her eyes widened and she ran a hand through her long locks, obviously a bit taken aback. “Hey, Silas… um, sorry, I was just passing through on a walk. I didn’t mean to disturb you. I — I’ll take off,” Alice eyed the guitar momentarily, taking her lesser lip between her top and bottom teeth. What she would give to be able to play an instrument. “How do you do that?” She questioned, pointing to the instrument. “You know, without gettin’ calluses on your fingers and stuff?”
Nothing’s more terrifying than seeing an animal give birth, but it had to be better than a cow, right? If I have time, I sure will. I’ve been itching it get a dog, in all honesty.
I think seeing a human give birth is probably pretty mortifying, but yes, you’re very right. It’s much better than seeing a cow give birth. Why can’t we all just lay eggs? It’s much more cleanly and I mean, less painful on the momma, don’t you think? Well, Shep, I’m sure a German Shepard would be perfect for you given the name and all.
