This morning I was outside at about 7:30, letting my dog go to the bathroom. He’s sort of a crazy guy and gets really upset when strangers come over. All of the sudden, after he was done with his business and doing his usual sniffing around, my gate opened. It was the OAM, who is actually, an OAW, Old Asian Woman! I had never really seen her up close so I never realized.
Of course my dog went nuts and I was terrified that he was going to attack her. I was also nervous to be coming face to face with my snack giver, as I liked the mystery of it all.
Well, mystery solved. I got my dog inside, nobody got hurt…and it turns out she has not been leaving me thank you presents for the fruit she takes, she has been leaving offerings for the Buddha statue I have in my garden.
She came in, ignored my dog and walked right to my table, put out the food, and went to the corner and started praying to the Buddha. I honestly never saw that coming, and I was amazed.
She sort of talked to me, but I had a hard time understanding a lot of what she said. She was very polite and even blew a kiss at me. Now that I understand what she is doing, I will no longer be posting about her. I am glad that she finds happiness in my garden and I hope she continues to do so. I also hope that my dog is never outside to bother her again.
So this is the end of my Bin Bin Cracker Love. I do still love Bin Bin Crackers, but I know that I can buy them at 99 Ranch when I have a craving!
