At 4:40 a.m. I opened the front inner door. Outer mesh still locked. Waning half Moon. Venus nearby. Summer stars towards setting. Should I step out? I'd almost decided to, when I suddenly noticed a figure standing just inside our cul-de-sac. Sometimes a neighbor is outdoors early, but this is TOO early and their house is completely dark. Another neighbor's trees and truck almost prevented me from seeing him. A chill went up my back, as just a moment before spotting him I'd wondered What if someone's prowling around? Sure enough! This person sees me. Turns and quickly walks away (straight street abutting our cul). Is wearing a backpack. He'd have no reason to come into our cul-de-sac. I'll thank our Lord and my guardian angel for protecting me. Husband's still sound asleep and he's hard of hearing.
