My Aunt Mary



People often ask me how I got so smart. By the end of this post you will know why.

A few months ago my cousin and her husband moved out to the southwest and bought a home.

{Factoid #1....I grew up in the southwest}

Said home needed some landscaping.

Well, in the southwest, because of lack of water, folks landscape using cactus and other plants that don't need much water.

So my cousin was talking to her Mom (Aunt Mary)(You would probably like Aunt Mary)....

...and Aunt Mary suggested she call up my Dad because he designed all of the cactus landscaping at my house when I lived in the southwest. It was awesome.

{Factoid #2...My Dad has been dead for 46 years.}

So how did I get so smart you ask? Well...I've got me some of that Aunt Mary blood flowing thru my body.

Does Wifey ever weigh in on your smarts/similarity to Aunt Mary?

If you look really closely at the cactus on the left, you can see an image of Jesus.

Word of Day #1: Xeriscaping!

Fact #1: I would like your Aunt Mary very much.

Hypothesis #1: Maybe your Aunt Mary is trying to send you a subtle message that your father was not so much who you assume he was and is still alive!

Quote of Day #1: Every family has its Fredo! Except Bilbo Baggins, who has a Frodo. Heh. Hobbit humor. Gotta love it.

Factoid #9: I am somewhat ashamed to have just resorted to hobbit humor.
