DD and her new hubby were on their way home from their honeymoon and passing by, so they stopped for a visit. We decided to go out to dinner and head back to our house right after and they'd get on the road again. That didn't happen! Well, at least for a couple of hours. On the way back to our house there was a big accident on the highway. Road blocked both directions for miles. There are no alternate routes around here, LOL. We were behind a cowboy in a pickup truck, heading to a rodeo. A little while later a couple of other cowboys were walking back to their truck, after walking up ahead to see if they could see anything (no one could, as it was miles up the road) so DH asked them if they saw anything. They stopped to chat and the cowboy in front us us walked back to talk to them, too. They were all headed - and going to now be late - for the rodeo.
I LOVE cowboys. LOL. Always have. These ones were the real deal, but the 2 walking back were so young, like 17 and 18. And always so polite. We enjoyed chatting with them for part of the wait. Finally, around 8:40 we got to start moving.
We have a pallet full of leftover stone for the outside of the house. They are in boxes that they came in, stacked 4-5 boxes high on the pallet, that is over on the side of our house, between us and neighbors. DH noticed a bunch of mouse droppings and the cardboard on the boxes tore into. Then he went around to the other side of it. One of the stacks, 4 high, was completely moved, turned at an angle on the pallet. DH said that stack is like 200 pounds. Then neighbor came outside and said he had noticed that too this morning because he had his dogs out and they were totally sniffing around it. They both figure it had to be something pretty big to be able to move the stack of stone like that. Maybe a bear? Neighbor has a game camera, so he brought it out and we're going to install it and see if we see anything the next few days.
