Living in a rural area we don’t get unexpected visitors often. Most who come to visit make arrangements beforehand to make sure we will be home and the day and time work for everyone. Most of our unexpected visitors happen around election time when a candidate might come around asking for our vote.
All of our other visitors are limited to the birds and squirrels that visit our feeders. These are not unexpected because we fill the feeders to encourage them to stop by.
This is all leading up to something that happened the other day. I noticed that the bird feeder was empty so I picked up the container of seed we keep by the door, opened the door, and was ready to step out onto the porch.
Imagine my surprise when I looked at the end of our driveway and saw someone standing there that I never expected to see in our yard. I called Kathy and we both stood there watching as he approached the house and then stepped up on our porch.
Where you came from I do not know. Seeing you was unexpected. You are not from the neighborhood. I knows who lives around me. Did you come from the top of the hill? A good two mile hike by anyone's standard. Were you seeking someone or just out for a walk? You were quite vocal though I understood not a word. I left you alone. Did yo go back home? Safe and sound after your morning outing.
