Gary and I

I met Gary in a town called Ocracoke about 2 months ago. I was walking and window shopping around 4:30 in the afternoon and that’s when I stumbled on an interesting general store. Out in front of the entrance is where our eyes met. He gazed at me longingly as if his eyes were saying “take me home, I’m on sale.” I couldn’t break the hold he had on me, yet he was not in my price range for that trip.

Sadly, I left the store and felt this emptiness come over me like a dark heavy cloak.  I kept walking and shopping and when we had walked the circuit of shops, we came back on the general store. I had this sense that if I could only send someone in to haggle for me, I could have him. Of course, the person I was with was being a turd and it took almost a half an hour to talk him into doing my bidding. But, we walked in and it happened! The manager accepted my offer, I went running out the front door, scooped him up and our hearts met again! I carried him all the way back to the house and placed him in his very own spot in the yard. The next day we traveled back home and from there, the rest is history.

Oh Gary. You are so special to me.
