My parents just got home from feeding their faces at a local restaurant before it got crowded. They stopped at Starbucks afterwards and then headed home. Well, as soon as Mom got ready to get out of the car she realized her purse was missing!
Fortunately, this Starbucks is only a few minutes away, and as soon as Mom walked in the door she felt like a celebrity because people were waving at her and smiling, and these were people who weren't even there when they were! The cashier came right over with her purse, and the couple that found it said they were happy she came back. The lady said she had done that herself many times before and that Mom had a nice purse (MOL) and the man wished her a very Happy New Year! Mom usually wears the purse as a backpack which is why she didn't miss holding it in her hands.
You can imagine how relieved and grateful Mom was so she bought the couple another round of coffee. Dad was waiting in the car outside and was relieved too. It's nice there are good people in this world!
Well, it was very confusing for us to hear the garage door open and close the first time with no one walking into the house. We're usually on the other side of the door waiting, but this time the wait was longer, so when they got home the second time, guess who dashed out the door and then out to the backyard? I had to do it one last time in 2009!
Yes, the side door to the backyard is often open when they're home because it gets stuffy in our garage. My parents just chuckled like they always do and Mom went back into the house to open the patio door and I came right back in.
I don't have a New Year's resolution, at least not yet, but Mom made one for all of us, and that is to have our pictures taken with her and Dad more often. Not so much for our pages, but to have them as keepsakes.
I'm still trying to figure out some of my "inner" health issues but I'm as chipper as ever and Mom has been keeping in touch with my vet. I'll be seeing her again sometime in the near future so I can remind her how saucy I can be!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and one that is as healthy as possible! I already know you're all well loved. We've shared some ups and downs together in 2009 but we can be grateful for each day we're here.
I'm SO glad your Mommy got her purse back. It could have been a terrible ending to a year. BUT it shows how good people are and it was a wonderful ending for 2009!!
I can imagine how confusing it was to have the garage door open and then no pawrents coming into the house. Mol!!
Mercy, wishing you and your pawrents and whole fur family and very healthy and happy Twenty Ten!!
What a wonderful way to end the year, with people doing the right thing!
Hi RA and HL, yes, in the short ride between Starbucks and home, there were completely different people there. Mom was hopeful that no one walked off with her purse!
Happy New Year!
Thank you fur the positive affirmation of the inherent GOOD in people! It's so nice to hear good mews, Mercy! You look lovely in your mew collars, by the way! :-)
Our Grandpaw always said he dreaded hearing our Grandmaw say two things - one was "where's my purse?", and the other was "I wonder who that cat belongs to?". I'm glad your Mom got her purse back - that can be a sickening feeling when you find it missing.
Happy New Year to you and your family - I hope it is a healthy happy one for all of you!
That is a nice story! I am happy for your Mommy. Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family, Mercy! I told, Sir Nikolai I hope that helathy is the buzz world of 2010. There is nothing that I want more for all of us.
Glad momcat got her purse back. Why can't all people be so kind to one another. Wishing you and your family a Happy 2010. Have you hugged your family today?
