Day 27

A night on the farm, revisited

April 22nd, 2010

To give you a little more detail about last night, the guy who agreed to let me stay on his property pointed me way down to the far end of a field, right next to his neighbors' house. I guess he figured if I'm a serial killer, at least I'll kill them first. How neighborly of him.

I briefly met Bob (pictured), one of those neighbors, last night. He told me to give him a holler if I needed anything. He then came down to check on me this morning, and asked "You want me to fix you on up some eggs?" That's an offer I'll never turn down, so I went inside and met his wife Diane (who didn't want to be in the picture even though she had on awesome giant duck slippers) and their two dogs, and Bob fixed me on up not just some eggs, but an entire breakfast, including dessert (a jelly doughnut)!

    Nice guy AND he looks like Shatner. Doubly good in my book.

  2. Mom says:

    I’m sorry to miss the duck slippers!

  3. Romona says:

    Thats my dad and my hero!!!!!!!
    He called me in Kentucky to share the magic—-keep on walkin!
    P.S. He gets the Shatner thing all the time–smile!

  4. Jonathan says:

    If they have breakfast-dessert in Ohio, then I am moving to Ohio.

  5. Brenda Brock says:

    That is my sweet Dad and he never meets a stranger. He is a good man…….I am glad you met him. He is loyal to the end. My Sister Romona and I are so blessed to have him and Mommy Duck slippers in our lives

  6. Romona says:

    I must comment on the “guy” who sent you almost to the neighbors house———-he is my dad’s best friend and he did do it———to give Bobby a hard time! He realized that YOU were harmless, yet he thought he would love to irritate his buddy! HE is a wonderful man and DID do it to give my father a prank, however it ended up a beautiful story! He indeed called wanting the “full story” HE indeed asked “if breakfast was served?” and Dad then filled him in………….on the glory! They had beers and laughed and laughed about the “axe murderer”!!!

  7. Janine says:

    *LOL* That is a really funny story, Romona!

  8. Beth says:

    awesome story!!! reminds me of my dad minus the shatner thing.. (my dad looks like santa). i’m glad there are good people in this world :)

  9. Fred says:

    Definitely looks like William Shatner. This guy could pick up a few dollars doing TV spots for local advertisers. Of course, he would need to SOUND like Shatner too.

      lol I thought everybody had a Shatner impression, maybe they’d think he was Shatner making fun of Shatner…..
