I was up with the sun today to get a jump start on the day before the triple digits arrive. I was out front doing some watering, and saw my neighbor across the street holding something. I said "Chris, what are you doing over there?"
"Waiting for the trash man to give him a Pepsi!" My first thought was, how sweet is that? And then I ran into the house to get my camera!
So, I got this shot of him across the street waiting. But then the trash man didn't come and didn't come......so we waited together on my front porch until finally I said you better go put that Pepsi back in the fridge, and wait til he comes back up our street. So off he went, and about an hour later, I hear the truck coming, so I quickly called his house, and unfortunately, he heard them first, and by the time I got out there, he had already given our trash man his cold drink, and I missed it!
Chris lives next door. He is going to be seventeen in October. He has Down Syndrome. He is the sweetest boy. And we have been blessed to be part of his life. Here he is across the street, waiting for the garbage truck to come by, with Pepsi in hand.
And here he is, standing out in front of our house as the trash truck goes by.
Here is Ducey peering through the front window wondering what is going on, and why he isn't part of it.
