Muselet

Driving home, this little muselet came to mind:

Once, I didn't know that people in the United States actually lived, in this day and age, on dirt roads.  Now I live on one.  When the new house is finished, I will live off a dirt road off a dirt road off a dirt road.

Once, I got my mail by leaning out of my front door and opening the mailbox.  Except for cold, the weather never touched me.  Now, I walk to the end of a long driveway to get my mail.  When the new house is done, I will walk down a longer driveway (if I'm lucky) or even out to the main (dirt) road to get my mail.

Funny, the turns life takes, hey?  And you wonder why I'm a work in progress?

I remember reading news reports about people living on dirt roads who were vehemently opposing plans to pave the roads. They figured that pavement would mean more traffic. They'd rather wash their cars twice a day than have the increased noise and risk.

I think there's some rule that if you have to walk to the end of a driveway to get your mail, you have to have a dog. So the dog can walk to the mailbox with you -- or rather, bound ahead of you until you have to call it back before it runs onto the road.

SHHH! Don't let Clif know about this until after we move in. He's liable to stop the whole construction thing!

Besides, I haven't warned the cats, yet.

(No, not right away, but I would love to get a dog. I'd also like to get the kind of life that would let me have a dog responsibly.)
