Cheerful company shortens the miles.__German Proberb
As we started out early this morning on the highway I could see something black ahead in the middle of the highway. I ask John if that was dead hogs or tires? Sometime they are hard to tell apart from a distance. Black pieces of tires and parts of dead hogs look alike. When we got closer we could see it was black wild pigs. Evidently the mama made it across and a car hit the young pigs. It was hard to tell how many it was but it was several. The wild hogs are pest but it isn't a pleasant sight to see them killed like that. They are usually black and hard to see at night on country roads where there is no lighting. We checked out the road where a friend of ours is moving to and made a big circle seeing some cute little minature donkeys. I want one! I had an idea but John said I am an air head. I said his back yard is large enough and the hee-hawing would get even with the neighbors. I wrote here about the neighbors moving in a small run-down house in their back yard. We talked to the city about it and the inspector as we think more then one house is not allowed on one lot in this town. We didn't get anywhere and the house has stayed. Now the neighbors are fixing it up which is better if it is going to remain but we think someone is going to live in it. Oh well John didn't agree to a donkey so life goes on. We passed the ranch of the man who bought some cattle for John in Louisiana and hauled them here. John thought of stopping to see if he wants to buy a few more there for him but I just drove on past. If he doesn't want a donkey he doesn't need anymore cows. It was a pleasant drive and gave me my fix until next time.
