On the way home for dinner tonight: A normally skittish quail stands on top of a white station wagon in the parking lot.
Across the street, where they sell gas for $4.09 a gallon, a semi-trailer is parked in the back with its door open. An orange tabby cat walks on the hot dashboard inside the truck, his tail brushing against the dirty window.
They're selling diesel for $4.79. I hope the trucker has enough left over for cat food.
