A short post. I'm tired and, I've actually had an uneventful day.
Last night before I went to bed, I found this .....
My Ali loves to curl up on my clothes. If there is one item of clothing on the bed or if I drop something on the floor, he finds it. After I came home yesterday, I tossed my clothes on the bed and went about my business. a little later, I found this ... asleep on the bed and curled up where he could smell my scent. It was so cute that I had to take a snap of it. I am so touched when I find him like this. I guess there is security in knowing that he is close to me, and I'm glad that he is able to find that comfort.
On a less personal note, a man who shot a county deputy last week was found today. He had abandoned a stolen car in Ruidoso Downs, the part of the town that is farthest away from me. I came home from my trip to hear that he was still out there somewhere. Not exactly comforting, even though he was last seen about 20 miles from my home. I've been somewhat vigilant, but not even close to "paranoid" about it. It is good to know that he isn't a threat now. Here is the odd thing ... he was found by the FBI and local deputies today (riding a bicycle some 40-50 miles away from Ruidoso), and he fired a gun at the deputy!! A bicycle??? Anyway, he is now dead. He was wanted in the State of Washington for identity theft. Interesting that he would go from that to shooting a deputy. At any rate, I can relax, now that he is not a possible threat.
And now, I'm headed to bed with great hopes of sleep, deep, deep sleep. Please, sleep!! I'm SO tired.
