Rode My Bike, Found a Penny
After I parked my bike and locked it up, I found this penny near the shopping carts. Ta da! I went in and shopped knowing I couldn't buy anything heavy or bulky because it had to fit in my backpack. (Dora singing "Backpack, backpack" just entered my brain.) I did find a wilting basil plant for $1.94 (on clearance) so brought that bad boy home.
Oh! On the way home, I saw a cute little yappy dog, a Pomeranian, I think, roaming around right on a busy street, so I followed it and tried to get it to stop so I could check its tags or to even see if it was wearing tags. It led me a couple blocks, we went down an alley, then it stopped and it looked like it was going to let me pet him (he peed several times, it was a him) when all of a sudden he went all Cujo on me and snarled, bared his teeth and growled at me. Then he came at me and they don't call those little things ankle-biters for nothing. I said, "Phooey" (actually I cussed) and let him roam. I went on home.
