Cassie was simply enjoying a relaxing afternoon with Sue, sipping wine and watching the river. Truly getting into trouble was the last thing on her mind, but when she hears her oldest cat stuck in a tree Cassie worries about how long she may have been stuck there. With Sue’s help Cassie rescues the cat, but after the ladder falls bending parts of it, it’s suddenly Cassie that’s stuck up a tree. With Tom gone for the afternoon, it’s Ryan the ladies call for help. However when he sees the unstable ladder he pulls out his phone and calls the rescue squad, infuriating Cassie –
“Why did you do that?” I flared.
“I could ask you the same thing,” he shot back. I told you he was getting more like Tom every day.
Ryan did ask them to come without lights and sirens, and they complied, but in a small town everyone and their brother seem to follow a fire truck, even a small one.
Can you imagine how foolish I felt sitting in a tree with the whole neighborhood staring up at me laughing?
But of course, with my luck holding true to form, it was only moments later that someone joined the crowd who was not at all amused by my predicament. From my perch I could see Tom pull in and my heart sank. I had the distinct feeling that sitting on that small hard branch was the most comfortable my rear was likely to be for a while.
