When I come up with the titles, I’m so tempted to make up a whole story. There are so many things I could think of to write about . . Vince and the UPS guy. Of course, they would all be made up but in my head, it’s funny.
We have a gate at the end of the driveway at the highway and it has a solar powered opener. It opens by punching in a code or using a garage door opener. When we first moved here and had to put in a driveway and the gate, many were surprised that we were putting in a gate but it’s rare to see a driveway without a gate here – out in the country. You don’t see them in the city, of course.
But the gate at the entrance is always closed but the gate in the picture is near the house – not real close but . . anyway, in 8-1/2 years of living here, we’ve never closed that gate. It’s mostly for keeping cows from coming up to the house but we don’t have cows so . . the gate is never closed. But, recently, Vince installed a bit of security and we’ve been closing that gate once we know UPS and Fed Ex aren’t coming.
This morning we sat down to eat breakfast and we heard UPS coming. Vince jumped up and ran (walked briskly!) to open the second gate.
UPS Guy: Did you get cows?
Vince: No. I keep it closed because the wife keeps trying to run away!
Where does he come up with this stuff? He said the UPS guy cracked up – not that it was so funny but so totally not the answer he was expecting!
