Was walking a few days ago, and heard an engine coming by. Now, this is unusual. I can hear the road, down from our place, but this was CLOSE...
Like someone was driving up behind me.
Rudee was even looking around. Where I walk is about a 100 yards from the closest neighbor, and even more so from the one on the other side. I looked to see if it was husband, although it didn't sound like the 4 wheeler. Nope, no one coming up the hill. But the engine noise WAS STILL THERE.
Okay, this is getting really, really wierd. I hear it, and look over at the neighbors. Are they doing something to the cows, or horses? No...
Husband isn't around. Dang, it sounds like it's on top of me!
I look up in time to see a motorized paraglider buzz over my head. Amazingly, Rudee didn't bark, he just sat down and intently watched the rig fly by. It turned and flew off twoard the mountains, and the rest of my walk was uneventful.
Highly unique, never know what you'll see when you tramp about our place!
(Little note to my friends in the US, today is National Night Out, there is a goal of trying to get all children fingerprinted, you can go to most of the gatherings and receive a phamplet to do it yourself, or get information on how to get it taken care of. Cheap insurance, as it were. Plus, most of the Night Out activites are pretty fun, so if you get a chance, have a Night Out!)
