It took place around Christmas time 2010 at my parents house in Kansas City, maybe slightly before, maybe slightly after. They were watching Reagan, my 6 almost 7 year old niece. I was visiting and about to take my parents dog KC outside for a quick run. KC is a poodle mixed with a Cocker, aka a Cockapoo, named after the city she was born in aka DUH. Anyways, as I was heading out, Reagan decided she wanted to come along on the run with me. Since I was not going to go very far, this sounded fun and on my parents ok, we were off.
No baby here, just me returning to Kansas City, Missouri. My contract had ended at the free health clinic I worked at in Miami-ville. And only after a couple days following the drive back, I was ready to hit the new old roads. But as I learned, my old home was a different terrain than I was used to.
