A McDonald's window.
You are probably wondering.
Well, a very good friend of mine who lives way out in the country and I mean WAY out, the same one I drove to Minnesota with to get a baby goat, asked me to do it.
She lives in the next county over and they don't have no-kill shelters. They just have their County Animal Shelter. So she belongs to a group that helps the shelter by raising money for the animals and help them find homes.
So the McDonald's out her way, was having a contest with various businesses and groups, painting each window. It would be free advertising for everyone.
Customers would be encouraged to vote for their favorite one.
Well, I being the hermit that I am, only said that I would do it if my friend sat with me and kept me company.
Turned out to be a wise decision as it took me over 45+ minutes to drive out there in the dark.
If I hadn't been meeting someone I knew. I'd never had gone.
When I got there I found out that it had to be painted on the inside of the window, to protect the paint from the elements.
That meant everything had to be done backwards! Lol!
As I got into it, I quickly realized it was going to take a fair amount of time to do.
I had brought a dry eraser marker with me and we were able to draw the letters on the window first with that, to assure proper placement.
Then my friend volunteered to do the lettering and then she also ended up doing the "snow".
It took us about 3 1/2 hours but finally we were done.
My friend had liked the painting I had done of the dachshund playing in leaves so I decided to do a cat and dog playing in snowflakes.
It was an experience and actually kinda fun and my friend was happy with it so that was good.
We had a nice talk while sipping on McD's Mocha coffee too!
I must say though, as I drove home through the countryside in the pitch-black, that I felt relieved to finally see the twinkle of city lights as I got closer to the town.
There might be many things I don't like about living where I do but that night I found that I felt comfort as I finally turned onto my street.
I think it would take some time to feel at ease if I ever moved so far out away from everything.
But all and all. It was a nice evening and I hope it helps the shelter in some small way.
