Here in Sarria this morning, getting ready for the next part of my pilgrimage. I took a plane from Bilbao to Santiago, then a van from Santiago to Sarria. The van driver was a nice man with two cell phones. One had the Benny Hill theme song for a ringtone. You know, the “Yakety Sax” song. Every time it rang, it made us laugh.
I found this one crying by a curb. I went to pet it and it cuddled up to me so sweetly. It was obviously a former pet that is now living on the streets near the guest house where I stayed. He LOVED the attention and let me give him belly rubs and chin rubs. If this had been in Santa Fe, George and I would be welcoming another member of the family. But…when I left the guest house the next morning, I noticed that someone had placed a small saucer of cheese on the ground outside. So I think someone is looking out for this dear one.
