It's amazing the things you find right under your nose. Um, no, not boogers or snot although there is plenty of that, but inspiring architecture and postal creativity within a few miles of home.
Deep in the heart of the D/FW metroplex, there are pockets of country living at its best. Country living is a lesson in self-expression in designing your home and yard, letting your vibrant personality shine through. You are probably not even aware you have neighbors.
One would think some of these folks have been transported to an alternate universe or at least to an episode of the Twilight Zone with Rod Serling's ghostly manifestation hovering around them. I think I saw Ron this morning on my run....
when I thought I must have transported into the CandyLand game but with rednecks and cars up on blocks as the game pieces:
OK, so this isn't the actual house I saw. My photo did not show the real beauty of the abode so I borrowed that one. Now, picture a pick-up truck out front and a Shetland pony out back.
Evil Twin is salivating all over the keyboard, muttering something about icing.
Further down the same road, I saw a fish mailbox. My photo doesn't do it justice but I like the log cabin house:
Fish. It's what for dinner (Well, maybe at THIS house!!)
I was glad when I returned to my neighborhood, sans hovering Ron, and was welcomed by Evil Twin's best friend hanging around in my neighbor's yard:
I'm pretty sure this guy is using a machete to whack the bamboo so he can creep closer and closer.
