I'm not just hanging out on a clothesline!
I really went on a road trip with Beth and her friend to take photos. They drove to Fayetteville, TX and 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 her friend clicked their cameras. They seemed mighty positive 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 her friend 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 he tucked tiny toys in the hole of his tree. Beth pretended she was Boo for a moment and let me sit in the hole and imagine Gem and Scout discovering me. But Beth is too selfish to leave me behind.
Just a little excitement...
I guess I should be flattered that Beth wanted to keep me and she didn't leave me behind in this odd, Boo Radley neighborhood. I kind of knew she cared even before the she put me in the hole. I saw her reach her hand inside to see how deep it was. Evidently, pretty deep because she propped something behind me, just in case. That's lucky because the wind did gust and I tumbled forward into the grass. That was actually very exciting. I do like to have a little adventure now and then.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
