Balmy Spring

Another balmy day here in the Great North East. The calender states it is January 6th,,,The middle of winter,,,Where only the brave and foolish venture out to play in the winter. It was 73 degrees. This is very strange,,,in all of my 29 years,,(choke),,I have never seen this. Makes me wonder of the consequence of it,,,,to the hibernating critters start to awake,,,the plants and tree's. Perhaps we should start growing oranges here. It is very strange this global warming. Wonder today what the Artic experienced,,,I'll check on that after I blog. Besides the weather being very strange,,so was my day delivering the mail. I just started out on a side road and all was cool,,,pulled out onto a major highway,,,and started to pick up speed when I noticed this van pulling out of a side road up ahead. Every thing looked normal till all of the sudden their left front wheel flies off and rolls towards me,,,I could not slam on the brakes having a few cars on my but behind me,,,so I start to slow down,,,luckily it missed me by two inches. And also lucky for me the person in the van was young and able to control the car,,,,had it been a older,,,person,,,say 70 or so,,,they might have veered towards me. Was a rush. Continued on my tour of delivering,,,and on this dead end road where I turn around I notice a large garbage bags with bugs all around it,,,as I look closer I see the bones,,,ugh,,,I back away,,,thinking now what do I do,,,better inspect that a little bit more before I go jumping the gun and call any one,, So I back up and check it out again,,,I see fur,,,not the brown kind of deer,,,but fur...Not sure if it was a dog,,,or what,,,but I ruled out deer. And left it at that. Made it back to the PO with no further incidents. I came in second in the office of getting done--Route 3 was back ,,put up his magazines and gone. I was rushing out there and don't know how he did it,,,,The other carrier came in right after me. I rushed to put up my stuff and planned to leave at 4;30,,,That will give me enough time to get up to the "home",,,,No time to stop at my own place yet,,,4;30 came and out the door I went,,only to find a motorcycle,,,on the ground and a rider blocking the driveway,,,also the fire trucks were there. The guy on the bike was smelling of booze and clearly wanted out,,pick up his bike and move away from that scene,,,and what was about to unfold,,but unlucky for him,,,he was in the town of "Mayberry",,,and they were going help him,,until Barney got there. I couldn't stick around any longer,,needed to get to the next job. Which turned out to be surprisingly normal,,,or even above that. My patient was happy,,,might have just started as she knew I was there...but I am glad for that. Another lady that I love,,,no longer was in a wheel chair,,,she was using a walker. Another gentle man that I knew from small talk,,,but did not know that good,,he too no longer in a wheel chair,,and 02 tank,,,but a walker. Small miracles. Now I am home,,,and glad to be here,,,and counting the days till my trip----Happy Trails!!!!******************************************************************
You know you're really trailer trash when...
The Halloween pumpkin on your front porch has more teeth than your spouse.You let your twelve-year-old daughter smoke at the table in front of her kids.You've been married three times and still have the same in-laws.You think a woman who is "out of your league" bowls on a different night.Jack Daniel's makes your list of "Most Admired People."You think Genitalia is an Italian airline.You wonder how gas stations keep their restrooms so clean.Someone in your family died right after saying "Hey, y'all watch this!"Your Junior / Senior prom had a daycare.You lit a match in the bathroom and your house exploded right off its wheels.The bluebook value of your truck goes up and down, depending on how much gas is in it.Ya' can't git married to yer sweetheart 'cause there's a dang law against it.You think loading the dishwasher means getting your wife drunk.Your toilet paper has page numbers on it.
