A strange happening on Tuesday. I saw a man behind the wheel of a vehicle in a parking lot. The gentleman appeared to be asleep, I thought nothing of it. About a half hour later, I noticed him again and there was no evidence of movement. I became concerned, is he ok ? I fretted about whether to tap on the window and to be truthful was fearing perhaps the poor guy had died. After weighing the options, I tapped on the window and the man awakened. He was a little groggy but fine. We both had a laugh about it.
I spent some time with a cow on Tuesday. It didn’t fart once !
