I spent part of my morning sprucing up the front porch. I wanted to get
it ready for Halloween. I decorated the two wrought iron chairs on
the porch. I'll show you a couple of pics of my efforts before I tell
you a story about our neighbor's first impression of us when we moved
in based on these chairs and two other wrought iron pieces in the
I kept the decorations fairly simple. Since we don't have any children, I
don't decorate for this holiday as much as the rest of y'all.
Here is the story of the neighbor's first impression. We all do this ~ a
new family moves into the neighborhood and we are all curious about
who they are and if we will like them. Our neighborhood is very tight
knit. It is very unusual for a family from a different city to move in let
along from a different state ~ especially somewhere as foreign as Idaho!
But we were later told that the gossip was that since they saw white wrought
iron garden furniture coming off the moving truck, they all knew that
although we spent some time in the Northwest, we must be from the
South originally because Southerners have white wrought iron furniture.
Imagine their relief ;-)
Of course we are Southerns now and I can prove it ….
When I am not drinking sweet tea, I'm drinking diet Dr. Pepper and
I now only use Duke's mayonnaise! Look what has happened to me
in just over a year living back in Texas ;-)
Big Texas Hugs,
