Update: Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men. Things didn't work out for us to buy the house that I posted a picture of here a couple of posts ago. So we are starting over again with our house hunting. We are hoping to turn this minor setback into an opportunity to find something we love even more. Stay tuned!
And now for something completely different!*
Love Bugs in rainbow colors
in a bizarre roadside tower
(like kindergarten blocks
piled in a precarious stack)
make me wonder
if some folks--
where they should have brains--
instead have rocks!
(and good sense they quite obviously lack).
Then I smile at the whimsy
of these creative folks
(who stack cars by the road like blocks),
and I'm grateful they're around
to make me laugh
and remind me
that sometimes it does us good
to approach life from a different angle
and go off on the unbeaten track.
