|Yesterday I snapped this picture from the car as we passed by.|
I had been hearing about the house a few miles from
us who had a flying saucer in their yard.
Welcome to Tennessee!
|A blue gargoyle in their tree.|
Love this warning sign for their safety
while crossing the road. :-)
|A dragon pops out of their roof!|
|A robot and I believe The Munsters are painted|
on the side of their house.
We also drove to West Knoxville and visited some different stores and a newer area called Turkey Creek. I saw one store that I liked, an interior design store that had some very unusual art. I may write about this art later.
Clint and I were in an area where an old boyfriend had lived and operated their family business. I was telling Clint about some of their experiences with this business they had owned in this area. We were sitting at a traffic light in a congested area with me chattering about "Joe" when a few yards before me "Joe" and his old employee passed in front of us in his mother's old car, a car that I believe to be a 1984 Cadillac. I would not help but exclaim "There's Joe!", it was from shock that I said it in this tone. I could not believe my eyes, how well I knew this car from 20+ years ago, I had helped them out once when it had been stolen and had driven it back from New Orleans with "Joe's" mother. It was surreal, as though time had not changed, to see "Joe" and John" in that car after all these years.
Clint mistakenly took my surprise as enthusiasm in seeing "Joe". Of course "Joe" had no idea I even saw him. Anyway, it was enough for him to write a blog yesterday about it. One would think as old as we are, there would be no jealousy. NOT! I think jealousy is not very becoming but sometimes Clint and I have some bouts of jealousy. I have asked some of my friends if they are ever jealous of their husbands, I am surprised that some have told me, "Are you kidding? As long as we have been married?"
Monday evening we had a pleasant surprise visit from a new neighbor. She brought over some homemade salsa and we had a good visit. She and I have some things in common and Saturday we may go to an event together.
Clint is working hard on emptying more boxes and here I am gossiping about him to the world. I suppose I need to go help him and pay him a little attention after yesterday's "events". ;~D
