Journal Entry 53
Aleece and I were spending the whole day together. Lisa had things to do. Motherhood was beginning to weigh heavily on her. She made plans to spend the whole day practicing with her band. It’s ok I don’t mind. Little Aleece and I were headed toward town to buy her some new clothes. If I was going to play mom I thought it would be a fun idea to buy her some outfits that I like. We still haven’t heard anything from Casey. I guess she had a lot of things on her mind that she needed to clear up. For Aleece’s sake I hope she comes home soon.
On our way out of Bear Country Aleece, Lost and I ran into Tony and Runt. We exchanged hello and then Tony asked if he and Runt could join us. Apparently, they didn’t have any plans for the day. Tony said there was a new arcade in town. He thought it would be fun if we stopped by there after shopping for Aleece.
Have you ever noticed that when you are shopping for something in particular that item is no where to be found? This seems to happen to me a lot. Anyway, we went from kiosk to kiosk looking for cute outfits that would fit Aleece. No one had any until we ran into Shanna’s Scraps to Clothes Boutique. This stuff was so cute. It was colorful, it was unique. Shanna makes all the clothes herself. She has talent. What is even more special is that this stuff has never been worn by anyone else. You can some times find stuff like that on the market but not often. Aleece now has several new outfits. She is now the best dressed baby in Bear Country.
We finished our shopping and headed toward this new arcade. I was excited and hungry. Runt was jumping all over the place he was so excited. Tony said he knew the proprietor. They were friends from long ago. The arcades owner was a young man named Hyatt. I kind of recognized him from our school days. Hyatt and Tony seemed to know each other well. They shook hands and hugged. Gave each other pats on the back. Hyatt sat us at a nice table, feed us and then gave us free tokens to play in the arcade. Runt had a wonderful time. I had a wonderful time. I think Aleece liked seeing all the pretty colors flashing around. She only got cranky once so Tony took her from me and made her happy again. It was so nice of Tony to invite Aleece and me to the arcade. I haven’t had this much fun in a long time. Even the festival wasn’t this much fun. It was late by the time we got back to Bear Country. Aleece was sound asleep. Runt was sound asleep. Tony had to carry him most of the way back. Even little Lost had a good day. He is such a funny little dog.
