We are on the verge of the weekend, and it’s time for five randoms.
1.) I must post a correction: the black stallion I shared photos of in Wednesday’s post was, in reality, NOT Gus. I had attempted to confirm it as I was writing the post, but I learned later that it wasn’t. This was the Gus imposter that we saw:
And the REAL Gus in this photo from the Corolla Wild Horse Fund.

So I apologize for the incorrect information. And one day, I hope we’ll see the REAL Gus.
2.) Wednesday, Motor Man and I had been out to lunch, and as we were walking back to our vehicle, I tripped on the curb and fell. Why is it that, when you fall, it takes forever to actually hit the ground? I remember thinking: can I please just fall already and get this over with? As Motor Man helped me to my feet, a young woman came running over to us to see if I was okay. She retrieved my shoe and offered to go inside and get me another soft drink (I had dropped mine during the fall). The folks in the drive-thru were certainly treated to a show as they waited in line. No serious injuries: just some soreness, and my pride was more than a little bruised.
3.) Anybody seen Sundae? Cute: earlier this morning, she “kissed” me on my ear. Not cute: it was 4:45 this morning and woke me from a sound sleep.
4.) Yesterday, I spent much of the day running errands. Soon after I returned to the shop, Gypsy was in my lap in her signature position. Silly girl cat.
5.) And, finally, in our travels, Motor Man and I recently saw this truck-being-used-as-a-billboard. I’ve sometimes heard the word realtor pronounced “reel-a-tor”, but I was a bit surprised to see it spelled this way in the web address. Oh well, if you’re looking for real estate in southeast Virginia/northeast North Carolina, here’s your link.
Happy weekend! We’re hoping for some sun for a change.
