FFfAW-On The Map

We took a road trip to Montana to get away for a week. Little did we know what we would encounter while on our trip.

We came across a roadside business where they make different characters from logs. Such wonderful wood carvings!

But there was one carving that really caught my eye. It was a carving of an alien.

I asked the business owner why they would carve an alien. This is what he told me,

“Several years ago we had an UFO land about a mile from here. Several people were able to get photos. When the aliens saw the lights of the cameras go off they got into their spaceship and took off.

When the pictures were developed, the photos looked liked they were simply overexposed and no image of the spaceship was photographedp.”

He said, “Our little town has become the second UFO capital of the world. (Roswell, New Mexico is the first), and a lot of people come to see where this spaceship landed, putting our little town on the map!”

FFfAW-Wait Until Morning

I was awakened by noises out in the parking lot of my apartment when someone started trying to get into my front door. I sat up quickly and listened. The door rattled some more. I ran to my closet and I crouched in my closet as quiet as a church mouse. My heart was beating so fast. I had to slow down my breathing so It wouldn't be so loud.

Men were yelling at each other outside. All I could think of was the apartment down the street was robbed and the woman that lived there had been raped and beaten. She is still in the hospital recovering. Oh my God, what if that happens to me? I started shaking. The time passed so slowly.

All of a sudden, my alarm went off and I knew that it was 6:00 am. The noises had stopped and I felt safe to come out of my closet. The sun was rising and I was safe. Suddenly it occurred to me, how badly I had to pee!

FFfAW – A Trip to the Museum

Robert is a history buff and decided we would travel to see the Museum of Strange History in Gargoyle, Illinois. I wasn't really into it but to make him happy, I told him we would go.

The day we left for the trip was beautiful. The sky was bright blue and the sun was out. This was a good thing because we had experienced a rough winter.

The drive would take us two days and we would stay in a motel on the way. We drove through some beautiful areas and I enjoyed seeing the gorgeous landscape.

We stopped in Ottawa and got us a motel. We had a very nice dinner at Pirate Jacks. I made several new friends.

The next afternoon, we reached Gargoyle and Robert was excited to go to the museum. We got us another motel, changed our clothes and left for the museum.

It was closed!

I certainly enjoyed the trip but I can't say the same for Robert.

FFfAW – Spanky

My sweet dachshund, Spanky, loved going to the woods and hills and run. We use to take him there when we went hiking. That was his favorite thing to do. I loved seeing him so happy.

When Spanky passed away, we decided to bury him in the hills that he loved so much. We carefully buried him and put rocks over his grave so other animals wouldn't dig up his remains.

I know that Spanky is still there running in the hills with his friends. It brings me peace to think of him running in those beautiful hills and woods.

FFfAW – The Trolley

During our family vacation, mom told us one of the things we would do while in San Francisco is take the trolley car to go shopping. All of us children were looking forward to that. We had seen pictures of the trolley and thought it would be a lot of fun.

When we got there, mom bought all the tickets and lined us up to board. My brother and I started play fighting which made mom mad. We were told we would have to stay at the hotel while she and the girls went shopping.

Bobby and I went back to the hotel to our room and decided to spend the afternoon watching cartoons. When we turned on the television it informed us that we had to put money in in order to get any programs. Drats! We couldn't watch the television.

It was a boring afternoon for me and Bobby. We ended up falling asleep and dreamed of riding the trolley.

FFfAW — Tropical Snow

Have you ever heard the term, “A cold day in hell?” The Tropics are a far cry from hell, but it snowed in the Tropics!

Children are outside with homemade sleds and families are building snowmen. Everyone is having a ball from this unlikely snowstorm.

The sandy beaches are covered with snow. People are at the beach building snow castles instead of sand castles. The bikini has been replaced with sweaters, long leggings and boots complimented with gloves and warm hats.

It's certainly not a cold day in hell but it sure is a cold day! We're having a ball!

Sugar

When my little dog Bria passed away from Conjestive heart failure, I was devasted. She was very special to me. She was my best friend for 15 years and 3 months.

After several months of grieving, I decided to get a new puppy. She can't replace Bria but at least she will keep me company. Her name is Sugar. She is a little pistol. I should have had my head examined before adopting a feisty little puppy. LOL! This is Sugar…
