two days before thanksgiving . . .

You know, sometimes yer driving in the cold pouring rain, minding yer own business and you notice the two black lab pups that you've noticed in their fenced in yard on the side of the road for a few months now, only this time they're on the edge of the road and not in their fence and the mobile home that they belong to is dark and no one is home so you go up the road and turn around and you go back, cause people go fast on this road and those pups are gonna get hit and you pull over and the pups chase yer truck and jump all over you when you open the door and they treat you like family and they follow you when you try to find the gate to their big fence and you finally find it and the bungee cords that used to hold the gate closed til they obviously chewed them up and you put the pups in and go back to yer truck to find more bungee cords and this girl comes out of the mobile home next door and asks you if you caught the pups and you say yes and she thanks you and you tell her to tell the owner to get a chain for the gate and she says thank you again and she's skinny and shivering and yer covered in mud but you find a couple of bungee cords in the truck and you go back and fix the gate . . . for now
