After having been gone for almost four weeks Speck was so happy to see me. He didn’t care that I’d been gone for 26 days . . he was just glad I was home. Vince was happy to see me. He could get home cooked meals again. Chad . . well, it’s spring break and he’s touring the fishing spots in Arkansas and I haven’t seen him yet. But . . Ruby . . she wasn’t so quick to forgive me for leaving her for so long!
I tried talking to her and she just stared at me! Very aloof . . not her usual friendly, outgoing self! She wouldn’t have anything to do with me . . she was downright aggravated with me! She kept her distance.
But I begged, and I sweet talked to her and eventually she came around a bit. She still wanted me to promise that I wasn’t going to leave for 4 weeks again!
Then I said to myself . . I know how to have you eating out of my hand, Ruby! And I grabbed some scratch and she just couldn’t resist.
Can’t stay mad long, can you, Ruby?
