Oooops! Too long but . . .

It turned out that John’s truck and trailer were too long for our driveway. Since it was early, he didn’t stay. However, we had a nice conversation before he moved on, sharing his rolling bachelor pad with Lucky, his friendly companion dog. His life has been an adventure full of delightful and interesting events.
