I've been barely present on these pages for a few days, getting life organized to go to my nephew's wedding this weekend, along with all the usual daily activities. But I had a quick little experience to share from yesterday that left me smiling.
I was on my way to a meeting, one I very nearly forgot about, driving along our winding mountain road, when a squirrel dashed across in front of me. It had plenty of time to make it past an oncoming driver, but not past me. I jammed on the brakes. and the squirrel put on its afterburners and made it to the other side before I had to come to a complete stop.
I was glad that my reflexes kicked in like that. Sometimes when I find myself day dreaming while driving, I wonder whether they're still there.
But aside from a happy squirrel, I was rewarded with a very spontaneous "thumbs up" from the oncoming driver. :-)
See you, although I'm not sure when.
