Does Chasing a "Can" Man Make Me a Stalker?
This afternoon Elijah, Alex, and I had a dental appointment in town. When we were finished,I thought I would take a few minutes before we drove home to take a few pictures of the Victorian homes in Waxahachie for a future blog. As we were entering the Town Square area of town, a pick up truck pulling a large trailer full of soda cans drove past. I'm assuming he had just picked up a load of aluminum cans at the recycling center. I thought that his trailer would make a great picture! So........off we went following the "Can" man. I followed him down College street, turned and followed him down Main Street at which point he made the light and I didn't. After the light finally turned green, I figured we would never find him again. After I turned onto Water street, we spied him parked at a gas station. Oh, wow, I thought. I'm going to get my picture after all. Well, just as we pulled up to the gas station, he took off with his cans in tow! We were off again, down Water Street, right onto Patrick Street. Then, he pulled off in front of a house and stopped. I thought.....Oh, dear, he thinks I'm following him.....Well, I was!!! I honestly couldn't believe how bold I was. I got right out of my car and walked up to his truck window. He was on his cell phone, but nodded that it was okay to take a picture. I probably could have done it without his permission, but I didn't want him to think I was your ordinary, run-of-the-mill stalker. Anyway......I got my picture, and a great one it is too!!!!!!!!
