Susie Knows A Good Man When She Sees One
Our cat Susie has always been terrified of Halloween. When she heard the first noise or saw the first goblin she took to the garage and got in the back as far as she could get into the storage area. She would stay there until there was not another trick or treater in sight. Tonight was a most unusual quiet night for our neighborhood. Probably due to Cowboy Fellowship partnering with another church to have a big party at the park in the next town over. It was well advertised and even John and I both had a recorded message on our machine inviting us and we haven't attended that church in several years. However there were maybe fifteen came to our door since I had my lighted pumpkin in the window and the porch light was on. I sat outside a while waiting with candy and Susie lay near by enjoying the cooler night. When three little kids walked up one was about four and was dressed like a preacher. That's what I thought he looked like. He sure wasn't a Power Ranger, ghost, or anything scary looking. He was neat as a pin with black pants, white shirt, vest, and tie. When he got even with Susie he bent over and petted her and she stayed right in place not moving an inch. In all the years that is the first time I have seen anyone who is a stranger get near her, let alone pet her.
