an unexpected surprise

When I left my house this morning for my walk, I headed up the hill as I usually do.  Suddenly, I heard someone saying good morning.  So I turned around to say hi and was surprised at who I saw.  I laughed and said, "I wasn't expecting  to see you today."  He laughed and said that "he had some things to check on before his big trip." A quick photo so I would know that it wasn't a dream and off we went to begin our day

  4. What a nice surprise! One of my blog friends saw Santa in an adjacent car in traffic, put down her window and told him she wanted diamond earrings!!!!!
    I hope you put in your request.

  5. Certainly a friendly neighbour, and a busy one! The best surprise is unexpected. Many thanks for your encouragement on my hiking blog. One way or another, the exercise should be very healing!!
