Speaking of John...
He is my hero. Even from afar he was busy taking care of this family of his.
I texted him after the run in with the coon at 4am. By 8am he had a college age boy I have never met at our house, crawling under the beams and retrieving the carcass. I couldn't bear to look, but he said it was bad. Really, really bad. This boy, he was precious! Can I say that about a 19 year old young man? Just don't tell him I said that, ok? He showed up completely prepared to crawl under my house and come face to face with a beast. And a completely gutted chicken. As we were chatting, he mentioned that he was leaving for Columbia today to go work in some orphanages. See? PRECIOUS!
|the kids were a rapt audience for Tyler. and kept him busy with all sorts of questions about |
Star Wars and Pokemon. Two things they've seen at the thrift store and are sooooo curious about!
After my new best friend Tyler removed the body, our friend Farmer Jason showed up to help out too. He is super busy this week but made the time to stop by to check on us and see what he could do. Here's my new motto: a mark of a good friend is the willingness to crawl under your house and scoop up a dead chicken. The end.
