About a week ago, during the rainstorm that flooded most of Ohio, we finally had a break in the clouds one afternoon. The dogs had not been out much (or at all) that day as they are scared of the storms.
Side note: if a crack of thunder doesn't wake you up in the middle of the night, a dog standing over you and panting loudly in your face surely will!
Because our Dog Walker recently quit, stating reasons like Soccer, and Cross Country, and Homework -- whatever, I decided that Abby and I could at least walk them around the block a little to stretch their legs and get. out. of. the. house. Did I mention it had been raining for several days?
So we started out and took our familiar path around Sweet-Smelling Flower Blvd. Abby was holding the leash of our least resistant dog (the Mrs.) and took off running down the street. She ran practically the whole way. I and the Mr. came along behind. Somewhere along the way, Abby got tired of holding the leash and gave it to me.
Several minutes later, I thought the Mrs. was stopping to sniff a tree but looked back just in time to see her depositing her waste in the grass. OH, NO!! I had not brought anything with which to pick it up. I hate when that happens and had often told my Dog Walkers to not let that happen.
I quickly glanced around to see if anyone was watching. Whew! I didn't think anyone had seen.
But then I noticed what house we were in front of. It was the neighborly family that posts Bible Scriptures on placards in the front lawn.
Today's message was this: "Be sure your sins will find you out!"
Yep! I guess so!
