A Story

I was a little hesitant to share this story, but it has been on my mind for a few days now. I don't think they will be too upset with me sharing this...

On Saturday, I was able to get out to the farm (on my bike) for a later lunch of BLT's. (Yes, bacon!) When I walked into the dining room, I noticed this dress hanging from one of the cabinet doors.

This was no ordinary dress.

So I proceeded to inquire a little bit more and Mom shared her side of the story. She has been been wanting to get a dress for Chad and Meg's upcoming wedding, but hadn't really found anything yet. So she had a day off from work and took off to Treat's in Plymouth. (At this point, she said Grandma Huff would have been so pleased - and she would have!!) She quickly saw a dress that she liked and even the shoes to go with it. However, she told the lady that was helping her that she needed to go home and talk it over with her husband. The lady said that they would hold it for 24 hours for her to decide. Back at home, Dad said that she should get it. Meg also said to get it. So the next day, Mom took off back to Plymouth to pick up the dress. The same lady was there from the day before but I guess she seemed a little worked up. Mom's immediate thought was that they had sold the dress already to someone else. The lady pulled out the slip and it said balance zero. Still not quite sure what was going on, Mom was now getting a little upset because she was sure someone else had bought the dress. Well, someone else had...

Dad!

The lady at the store was so excited and I guess even a bit emotional. Mom was so pleased. (For the ladies out there, don't worry, she bought the shoes, too.)

Anyway, thanks Mom and Dad for a great story.

Mom, you deserve it.

Great work, Dad.
