I Saw A Ghost

I'm sure I did. Rosie was out in the backyard barking, and I went out to see what she was barking at. I went to the edge of my deck and looked over at her. Rosie was about six feet from the fence barking at a black and white dog in the neighbor's yard. He looked friendly and not at all scared, so I stepped back and went around the railing to go to the fence and check on him, since he should not have been there because my neighbor doesn't have a dog. When I got around to where I could see the neighbor's back yard - about five seconds or less, the dog was gone. I looked around, noticing the neighbor's gate was closed so, if there had been a dog there, he couldn't have gone out through the gate. I looked all over the backyard and there was no dog there.

I'm sure, now, that he was a ghost. The dog looked very much like Butch, the dog my neighbor (who used to live in that house) killed with anti-freeze. He must have stopped by to see us. Or to let us see him.

More about HEB:

Got a phone call today from the manager of the local store - the one where I bought that disgusting "casserole." I didn't take the call because I was sleeping late (very late), so he left a message. He enthusiastically apologized for the bad experience and invited me to come back to the store for a refund. I won't, because it's just not that important to me.

In any case, I'm happy about HEB's handling of the matter. I only hope they improve the quality of their casserole, but they probably won't.

You have a neighbour who killed a dog with anti-freeze???? I hope some very bad things were done to him by other neighbours. If not, time's-a-wastin'.

I thought I'd blogged about it, but I can't find the post.
