My eyes reported to me this morning that they were seeing movement in the scrub in the back of my yard. Movement that was not birds or squirrels. A white blob moving about in the brush. Ah ha!
John Doe is not among the missing! He is alive and well in my backyard! All is right in my world now.
Although – he did not come out of the scrub. Perhaps all is not so right – perhaps he is offended.
I realized, after I hit the “publish” button yesterday, that the post about John Doe was my 500th post on this WordPress forum. There were posts before that, on another blog hosting site, still I had intended to celebrate #500, thinking John Doe’s story was #499. Oh well. I’ll celebrate now.
Hooray for #501!
