A Funny Thing Happened...

...on the way to the Post Office today. Me and the bug are walkers. We walk everywhere we possibly can (which in this town is everywhere because no where is more than two miles away.)

So this afternoon in the 95 degree heat I got a wild hair and decided to go get the mail. I'm very spontaneous and adventurous like that. So I loaded up the stroller, popped Lily in and off we headed to make the 8 block round trip to the post office.  We went in, got our mail, chatted (because you ALWAYS run in to someone at the post office) and headed home.

That's when things got a little crazy. And by crazy I mean a friend of ours that works at the Sheriff's office pulled up next to me and said I'm going to follow you home.

Huh?!?!?

She went on to say that an inmate from the local jail had just taken flight and even though they think he was headed the other way she would rather be safe than sorry.  Oh My Goodness.

Did I lock my front door?(Yes)Did I lock my back door? (Yes) What if he is hiding our in our back yard? (He wasn't) What could have happened to us before she started following us?(Um who knows, but it didn't)  What is this madness in my perfectly safe little town? What is the world coming to?!?!?

And mostly by the time I thought all that we were almost home. So I chatted with her for a bit until I got home. Checked around the house. Gave the bug a toy and checked the back yard and I'm happy to report no escaped inmates today. So really nothing that crazy happened. It was just that it got my delicate little heart pounding some and we haven't had much excitment around here lately (also, I'm easily excitable, kind of like our Border Collie) (yes, I did just compare myself to our dog.) (Awesome.)

Anything interesting happen in your neck of the woods today?
