Little Bear's Adventure's
Me on the Clothesline
Today I went on a road trip with Beth and her friend Lorrie.
They drove to Fayetteville, TX to take pictures. They carried a stack of quilts into some stranger's backyard. I don't know why they wanted to take pictures of quilts on a clothesline, but I'm always game for adventure and I kept an eye out from the top of a clothespin.
You'd be surprised what a nice view it was from the top of the quilt. I could see two horses in a field and the wind was blowing the grass and the sun was popping in and out from behind moving clouds.
The Mystery House
I could also keep an eye on the house while Beth and Lorrie clicked their cameras. They seemed mighty positive that no one was home. But, I'm pretty sure they could get in trouble for trespassing.
While keeping an eye out, I noticed a nice hole in a tree! I was getting curious about the hole, when I overheard Beth and her friend whispering about a man who was watching them from the porch of another house. They were nicknaming him Boo Radley.
Boo Radley's Tree
Beth and Lorrie were acting like mothers, talking in code while their kids play. But I've read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and I know about that creepy Boo character. But I always thought it was very cool the way Boo tucked tiny toys in the hole of his tree.
Then, Beth pretended she was Boo for a moment and let me sit in the hole. That was dangerous. I could have fallen inside that tree! But it was fun to imagine Gem and Scout discovering me. Luckily Beth is too selfish to leave me behind.
At one moment Beth left her camera unattended and I climbed the tripod.
Click! I got a photo of Lorrie and Beth and they never knew!
This turned out to be sort of a fun adventure.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
