The Rooster and his wife were so appreciative to have the Mehrling’s stop by on their trip north today. We have followed Anne’s blog for a number of years, and she has followed mine. We have been known to frequently respond with comments towards each other’s writings. Although time committments didn’t allow the visit to be lenghthy, it was wonderful none the less, in meeting the person holding the pen. Well, the hand punching the keys at any rate.
I’ve grown to know the family through Ann’s Blog, as well as the growth of eight year old neighbor Logan and others who live close by. It’s simply amazing how the blogging world brings people together. This one short visit and life’s event sharing, paints the picture further and fills the gaps not said in a Blog.
Several days earlier I had mentioned to our eldest daughter of the pending visit. My daughter inquired, what we would do if they turned out to be Cereal Killers? No worry’s here I assured her. The only thing that turned out to be dead was their car. Seems the van they rode in was a rental with NY plates. Anne has written several times lately about their own van. It died on them once at a Funeral Home, (how appropriate) and, most recently needed a jump to get started. Turns out this was something I cautioned her about recently. Just yesterday she wrote in an email about their coming trip the following, “To set your mind at rest — we got a new battery for the car this morning. Yes, it helps my mind, too”. The cereal killer got the van my daughter.
So I’ll end this Blog with a most appreciative, thank you Anne and John for taking the time out of your busy schedule to vist with us. You are more than the fingers walking across the keys. We call you our friends and look forward to returning the visit, The Rooster and wife.
Hello Rooster. I just popped over after reading Anne’s post and decided to follow your blog as well. Especially since you call yourself rooster because we have a small farm where we raise a flock of 20-30 hens and one rooster. (His name is Cocky by the way) Anyway just wanted to say hi and I am looking forward to reading more.
5 ladies and two kind gentle Roosters at the moment. Have Have had as many as 18 or so over the past 15 years. They free range, enjoy life provide breakfast and baking needs,and, keep the Tic population in check. Thanks for stopping by Ruth.
Free range eggs are the best!!! 🙂
What a fun story! I found this blog via the related post that Anne wrote.
We had a delightful visit, and we are going to hold you to your promise of coming to NC to see us. I love your photo that included Benjamin Franklin. If you don’t mind, I’m going to download that for our files.
Absolutely, Loved the NY City trip. Have sat through a few Lessons and Carols over the years. Daughters were members of St. Peters Episcopal church in Salisbury for a number of years. Many L & C’s there, would have loved for you to see it. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj0rbTj7KvfAhXPUt8KHYGdCq8QjRx6BAgBEAU&url=http%3A%2F%2Fdowntownsby.com%2Fbusiness%2Fst-peters-episcopal-church%2F&psig=AOvVaw1ZXOuEbxUvBujAx6Ch6B4J&ust=1545307364885565
