Mr. and Mrs. Undaunted decided to meet at Bessie for work date night…

She picked up Taco Bueno and 2 large sweet teas.

He met her there.

She arrived first, stepped out of the car welcomed by the gentle hum of insects and the cool, crisp air of the first official day of fall.  It was all she had hoped it might be…

She gingerly picked up the drinks and the sack containing their food and headed inside…she also took a box containing some of her favorite shells from Dauphin Island and put them on the mantle…there now…it feels like home.

He arrived, famished, from a long day of work.  They took their food on the front porch…he sat in the rocker, she sat on porch, they used igloos for their tables…

it was quiet…it was cool…the food was good…the tea, superb…

they talked about their days, sharing fun stories and work projects…

they enjoyed one another…

they finished eating…went inside and got to work!

She said midwork, “Are we crazy or what?”

He said, “Some people would think so….”

they smiled at themselves…

work day 21 021   work day 21 009   work day 21 020

They finished flooring the living room and one side of the schoolroom/office…

work day 21 006

they locked up and left…the night was cool…the stars were bright…

she couldn’t remember what she did to deserve him…

oh yeah…nothing.
