Where's my camera?

Work days for me are a 32 mile one way trip down the highway, but every now and then something amazing happens. Yesterday, it was a pretty lonely road. (Really, God brings special little things to me all the time.) I'm driving, singing to the SOS radio I have on (excellent Christian radio station). I see something off in the distance - I think it's one of those long whip antenna's - all the miner's trucks have them. So as I get closer, the "thing" gets bigger. I then think maybe it's a bicycler. Nope, it's too thin. What is it? I am wracking my brain and straining my eyes because I'm coming up on it pretty fast. Then I realize it's an antelope, a young buck, who is running right in the middle of my lane - right at me. As I get closer I start to slow way down - he just keeps coming. He's not paying me any mind and I imagine him jumping in the front seat with me - thru the glass! So I beep the horn - I stop, he stops! He looks right at me, about 10 feet away from me. He then looks around, like he was trying to figure out, "How'd I get here?" And up over the fence he goes. Just when I needed my trusty camera - I left it home. Oh well, God blessed me with the little incident anyway. Didn't see one single antelope on the way out today!

What a hoot. And the pits about the camera.
Mine finally quit. I need to get another and will eventually. Sara has two so I borrow when I need to.

That David, how sweet. Those are the most special gifts, the just because, one's. Give him a hug from me and tell him that is for just being a sweet and loving man to his wife and his sis-in-law.
Love ya
