Come on, be honest, that headline caught your eye, didn’t it? Now get your mind out of the gutter, because Terry and I have a mystery we just can’t figure out.
We have laminate wood flooring in our bus conversion, and we have an area rug in the front between my desk and the sofa on the other side of the bus. Yesterday morning when we got up, there was a large wet spot on the edge of the rug, probably about 24 inches long and up to 8 inches wide at its largest point, and we have no idea where it came from.
My first thought was that we had a leaking water pipe under the sunk, but all is dry there, and there was no track leading to the mystery area. We have not had any rain, and the damp area wasn’t near a window or vent anyway. Neither of us spilled anything, so where did it come from?
Did Miss Terry get me a puppy that’s she’s hiding someplace until my birthday in October? Did my two year old granddaughter Destiny steal her mom’s car keys and pay us a midnight visit, and have an accident in the process? I’ve reached that age where I make a lot of trips to the bathroom at night, but I never sleep that soundly! Or do I? We’re mystified.
I picked up a neat book yesterday, 1,000 Places To See In The USA And Canada Before You Die. I’ve seen it in several bookstores, but never got around to buying a copy. I’m glad I finally did.
I’m surprised at how many of the places listed in the book we’ve already been to, but the good news is that there are still plenty left yet to see. I guess that means I won’t be checking out anytime soon!
It always amazes me how many people travel across the country to see some famous landmark, but have never been to the ones right at home. We know many Arizonians who have never visited the Grand Canyon, for example, or folks in Florida who have never visited the Keys. I guess they figure those places are close to home, so they can get to them anytime, and they never do.
I’m just as guilty. I spent much of my life here in Arizona, and while I have been to the Grand Canyon, I have yet to see the Four Corners area, Monument Valley, or Canyon de Chelly. I need to add them to my personal Bucket List.
