We were at a wedding.  There was a gentleman in Lederhosen. My friend had to know why anyone would be wearing Lederhosen… in October… in Texas… at a wedding that had nothing to do with Germany… and it is still ridiculously HOT in October, in Texas… Except, he didn’t ask “Why are you wearing Lederhosen?”  […]

The horse was no help…

We decided that the time had come to replace the mailbox in our neighborhood… every time you opened the door, it would fall to the ground, underneath the car.
