Homeless
Much like how I felt when I wrote the camping out entry, I felt again tonight. You see it is very cold tonight. I went with my children on a short drive to Burger King. As I turned there he was with his dog walking somewhere. Last week I saw him at the trash dumpster around a small fire in a container trying to keep warm. Tonight I wondered where he was going. Was he going to the homeless shelter over three or four miles away in the next town? Maybe not because his dog might not be allowed there. Was he going to the bridge where homeless folks are known to frequent? He was walking fast and his dog too. They did not seem troubled but more like happy. After we left, I thought of going to find him and giving him a couple of bucks but then I got scared.
We started for home and already he was at the Walgreens more than a mile or two from where I last saw him only ten minutes ago. I wondered if he was going in there as it is a 24 hour store and one of the few still open.
It is down in the twenties after mild weather the last few weeks. It is a great extreme for any body to take. I feel for him. I see him every where. He and his dog are all over town. Usually he has a sign asking for work for food. The dog used to be kind of skinny but seems fatter now. I think next time I see them I am going to give him something (food or money).
