first walk in forever.
gorgeous morning out.
it feels so good to be home.
so good to be back to my day.
i wrapped my neighborhood around me
like a comfy worn jacket.
i walked and just felt good.
and then.....i saw it!
the dump truck!
the dump truck's back!
i got a huge huge smile on my face....
it was sittin' there warmin' up.
i walked up to it, tried to look inside,
but he's got the windows tinted so i can't.
waved just in case he was in there...
and kept goin'. with a gigantic smile.
he used to be my neighbor. well, down the
one day....the only day i ever had a real
problem when i walked....it was his dump
truck i put between me and some scary guys.
i got around his dump truck.
and then when they pulled in to his drive
way to intimidate me,
i went up to his porch.
i stayed a bit.
sat on his porch scared to death.
after awhile, i walked home.
from that day on, i've carried a cell phone
with me when i walk.
but i always felt like it was the dump truck
that took care of me that morning.
and the dump truck driver's house.
well....the house burned down to the ground
a good bit ago. it took forever for them to
and there.....this morning......
the dump truck stood warming up.
i couldn't believe how good it was to see it
back. to hear it doin' its noises.
ahhh it's good to be home.
and home just got even better.
