And I’m not talking chocolate, either, Amigos.


This is Hershey

Since Pretty has retired from the Mast General Store, she and her best buddy Super Shelley have been keeping the roads hot between Prosperity and West Columbia…working on Pretty’s new antique booth business adventures. Occasionally the old woman Slow tags along, but she is generally in the way and has been referred to behind her back as the proverbial bull in the china shop, but you didn’t hear it from me.

The Red Man has been largely ignored during these outings – and never invited to ride along for the ride. Never.

Sunday afternoon Slow tagged along with Pretty and Super Shelley while they took stuff to the Three Rivers Antique Shop in West Columbia. They’re getting ready for the big Grand Opening this coming Saturday from 11 – 2 and are in a tizzy with their pricing and re-arranging the items, blah, blah, blah. It’s a circus.

So Slow comes home and all she can talk about is Hershey. Hershey this. Hershey that. How cute was Hershey. Ad nauseum.

Apparently their friend Paul has the booth right behind them at the Three Rivers Antique Shop, and he brought his dog Hershey with him Sunday for a little fun outing. Slow even took a picture of Hershey – she was so taken with his cuteness. I don’t get it. What’s the big deal? So he’s a cute dog that Paul can carry around like a baby. So what?

Where, oh where, was The Red Man’s invitation for a Sunday outing? Lost in the mail, perhaps. Lost in the evites maybe. But lost, regardless.

Well, well, well, Now I see how I really rate around here – and how swell it must be to live at Hershey’s house with someone who appreciates the importance of an affirmative inclusion policy for his dog.

Hm. I might just make up a sign for my new social justice issue: Take Red to Three Rivers Today!

Get me outta here, Percy. I’m a doggie on the edge…stay tuned, Sports Fans.
