I love this! I'd seen it on 'Along the Hudson' yesterday and had been looking forward to hitting the red heart here today as well! Which I've duly done... although maybe it should be a blue heart for today?

A hitchhiking couple named Cloud and Dove stayed with my family for three or four nights as they were traveling. I might have been ten or eleven at the time. When my Mom brought them home my Dad was not pleased, ha!

We had a blast sharing stories with them. They had a dog, too. Can’t remember his name. I don’t know why your story made me think of them on the second read-through, but it did. 🀣
