Over te Horizon
Rusty: Why are we posting this picture?
Micah: That's what the sky looked like at sundown a week ago yesterday.
Rusty: Oh, yeah, beautiful reds and yellow against black.
Micah: Well, that's how Jan said she feels today.
Rusty: I'd hate to be the one to break it to her but she must be colorblind. She's more apt to be black and blue than red and yellow.
Micah: No, I don't mean she feels colorful. It's been a busy week and she's very, very tired. Something about at the end of the day the sun drops over the horizon and -
Rusty: And Jan wants to drop over there, too? You do know she's terrified of heights, don't you!
Micah: Yes, I know that, but what she wants is to fall into bed for a good long rest.
Rusty: You know what that means, don't you?
Micah: Yes, it means she's turning off the alarm and we're all going to get some extra peace and quiet around here tonight.
Rusty: I'll go check the status of the food bowls and then warm up Jan's pillow.. You can go organize the others to make sure Buddy's steps are beside the bed and his quilt waiting for him. The dogs need to take a quick run outside. And don't forget to make sure the night light is on so Jan doesn't fall over her own feet in the dark. Did I forget anything?
Micah: Yes, you forgot to say please.
UPDATE: Yes, we put Jan down for a long winter nap but she has already popped back up again. In our haste we misspelled "the" in the title. (How does one misspell the?) We are just discovering the mistake - 12 hours after it published - so correcting it would only cause a whole new set of problems. Have a good laugh. Your turn will come. :)
We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.
