It's been..One week since...

Okay, not really a week, but as I sat to type this out, "One Week" popped in my head for no apparent reason...


Em has been showing us her 'dance moves' lately. She enjoys 'Number 42' a lot, or so it seems, since she announces that she is doing 'Dance Move Number 42' often enough. Amazingly, it does not QUITE resemble some of the other numbered moves she does... It is wildly entertaining, and she is so serious about it that we can't help but bite the sides of our mouths to help keep us from laughing... :-)


The trip to and from Houston proved to be entertaining, and I am pretty sure I have secured my place in the "Never let HIM drive again" Hall-of-Fame! Let's just say that a near side-swipe and a couple wrong turns go a long way to ensuring you are never asked to drive again... But, hey, at least *I* didn't get pulled over by the local Sheriff (unlike someone ELSE who was driving on that trip).


Seven Oaks, Texas... Not much there other than a house with, well, seven large oak trees sticking out of it... We thought we'd get a picture on the way back through, but, well, I was driving at the time, and all eyes seemed to have been distracted from the large trees sticking out of a house - go figure....


Another thing we saw of note was the "Pot-Bellied Man." Or more, accurately, the HUGE man-like figure constructed entirely of...clay pots...as in Terra cotta... Of course, we had all kinds of names for him - "Pot-head," "Pot for brains..." Yeah, it was that kind of road trip...


So, the next time you see a white passenger van tolling down the road, you might want to give it some extra room, just in case the passengers forget that I'm not supposed to be driving the thing.... Oh, and I washed my truck today...and of course, it rained shortly thereafter....at least Monday is over... Say Good-Night, Gracie....
