Got a thank you note from Dawn and the girls yesterday.
They are back home.
They’d been living with us since early April.
Not one, but five single females.
Now that is a lot of Estrogen.
I haven’t mentioned this latest turn of events because they were in legal trouble. Now that they’ve been given the green light to return home, I can tell you a little more.
I was approached by Chris in early April, and asked if we could provide “temporarily ” housing for some of his friends. They’d gotten themselves into legal trouble and it looked like it might be a few months before all of their paperwork could be sorted out. I had mixed feelings, only because I love my peace and quiet and the last thing I wanted was more drama. We were told all we needed to provide was a place to stay, food and any other expenses would be taken care of. Our place was the perfect place to lay low. Surrounded by corn and bean fields as far as the eye can see. Makes sense to me.
I finally conceded, and all of us settled into a new routine. As it turned out, we all got along just fine.
Dawn was the red-head. She was my favorite. She made it a point to say “hi” every time I saw her. The other four never really let down their guard.
I get that.
Here’s a picture of their thank you note:
Here’s a group picture of them just before they left:
Dawn and girls heading home.
The town they were from passed a back yard chicken ordinance last week making it legal for them to return home. They’d been given 72 hours to get out of town this past April and living with us ever since.
Here’s Tom Petty’s: Don’t Want To Live Like A Refuge. Fitting song for a happy ending.
Tell me about a time, you or someone you knew had a run in with the law. I want to know details! ;-) DM
