The Rancher and the Bag Lady got a few things accomplished yesterday. The Bag Lady mowed the lawn while the Rancher prepared the motorhome for the season. He discovered a few water leaks so had to hunt down some new washers and do all kinds of mysterious things under the sink.
The Bag Lady worked on planting some of her bedding plants as well - she is really hoping the weather will remain warm and there will be no frost.
After they finished for the day, they built a fire in the firepit in the back yard and sat around with another couple from the neighbourhood who live about three miles away, as the crow flies.
Toward the end of the evening, the fellow who was visiting said "OH, I almost forgot to tell you. The other day I was working out in the yard and could hear our new cat making all kinds of strange noises, so I investigated and found our old cat had come back home! He's been gone almost a year!"
The Bag Lady's ears perked up and she asked what the old cat looked like..... sure enough, the neighbour said he was a big orange cat, and the Bag Lady asked if he had a little crook at the end of his tail.... Apparently, "Frank" had journeyed far and wide, but finally returned home!
It's nice to know your name, Frank!
