Well...I have been looking and looking for my camera to take pictures and put on this blog but since I have been cleaning and organizing I can't find anything! Does that ever happen to anyone else? It LOOKS better around here but I can't find anything now. So, since I can't show you any pictures I figured I would tell you about 2 events that happened to me this week that were pretty interesting...to me at least.
Event #1 - I was on my way to the county seat to pay my yearly property taxes and out in the country in the middle of nowhere I came upon a "chain gang" which I had never seen in my life. There were prisoners all dressed in white...pants, shirts, and even caps that went over their ears to prevent sunburn I'm sure. They weren't in chains...at least I don't think they were but they were clearing brush in a big field and there was a big bonfire. There were police on horseback guarding them while they worked. It was really creepy and I have no idea why they were there as it didn't seem to be public land and the only prison I am aware of is over an hour away. I would hate to be on the wrong side of the law...that would be pretty terrifying to say the least.
Event #2 - A little more on the bright side of things. I was bringing in some plants that had been outside all summer and as I was carrying one of them into the house, something fairly large jumped out of the plant and landed on my arm! I screamed but thank goodness I did not throw the plant in the air when I did. It was a frog or toad...not sure what the difference is. He jumped under the chest of drawers by the front door and I had to chase him out the door again which thankfully I was able to do. Once I discovered what had landed on my arm I laughed at my foolish fear! Nothing like a little scare to get the old heart pumpin' in the morning! Now I am off to find that silly camera which is hiding from me!
