I was watching a couple kids in my neighborhood riding around on their bikes. Oh my, but these kids were having so much fun! It reminded me of Autumn and I when we were their age. They were about 8-9 years old and just having a good time of it, just like we used to. Well, those were the days, childhood memories rushing in and overtaking me. A story to be told and tell it I will, here we go on another twin adventure! 🙂
Autumn and I had been riding very well since we were about 6 years old, those training wheels didn’t last long on our first bikes. We were ready to roll, literally and in no time flat and giving our parents all kinds of headaches. Pretty soon they were OK with us and they gave us certain boundries, how far and where we could and couldn’t ride. We did listen very well, who wanted to cause our parents more worries.
This one special day, we took off on what would beome a bike ride we would remember. It was a Saturday in early fall, about this time of year as a matter of fact. We were given about an hour, so Autumn and I were going to make the most of our time. Off we pedaled, side by side and smiling happily.
We were having a nice ride, a few neighborhoods or so away from home. When a pile of leaves moving about in an empty lot caught our attention. Of course we stopped and went to investigate, what did we find? It was a puppy, but where did it come from, whose was it, where did it belong? It was a cute little black and white puppy, very friendly and seemed so happy to see us, too. It was happily thumping it’s little tail and licking our hands, loving the pats and petting from us twinnies.
Autumn and I sure wanted to take it home, but we knew better. It was clearly somebody’s lost little puppy and Autumn and I checked the collar, there was the owner’s name and the puppy’s name! The people who owned “Sparkles”, (that was the puppy’s name) lived only a block over from where we were now. Oh Yay, we said it was going to be a happy ending! We had to push our bikes and take turns holding the puppy, it seemed to like both of us so much. 🙂
Autumn and I finally arrived at the lost puppy’s home & knocked on the door. A lady answered and started smiling so big when she saw us with her puppy. You found her, Sparkles and I were playing in the backyard when she was chasing her ball, then noticed a squirrel and just kept running! Turns out she had only been gone a short time, well all’s well that ends well. Autumn and I said our goodbyes to nice Mrs D. who ended up of course knowing our parents and gave them a phone call to tell them where we were. We gave Sparkles hugs and told Mrs D. goodbye, telling her we would be back to visit. Off we pedaled on our bikes, getting back home in no time. It was such a fun ride and what a joy it had been to find Sparkles and return her to Mrs D.! 🙂
Happy endings are so nice, aren’t they? 🙂
