Suzie and Dale had heard about me and knew I would be passing through their area, so Dale made a big, encouraging sign for me and put it up next to the highway. But, as you may recall, I was not on the highway yesterday, so I didn't pass the sign. What I did happen to pass, however, was their house! They came out when they saw me and invited me in to spend the night. When I hit the road again this morning, I was a happy traveler: clean, well-fed, and shorn (Suzie gave me a haircut).
