Graveyard humor and other snap shots.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the box! Michael & Siobhan display their graveyard humour.

 We had a big storm system move through the area bringing much needed rain.  With the result that we could have fires, for the second time since we have been here.  Other than that we have had a burn ban in place the entire time that we have been here.  In September, large area's of Texas burned.  The drought had left Texas parched with cracked earth and tinder dry bush.
The storm was accompanied by tornado's in South Texas, where we are.  We spent a sleepless night, as there were tornado warnings on the news.  It's not so cool to live in a mobile home when there are tornado's around.  They did touch down around Houston, which is quite rare.

Everything in Texas is BIGGER & BETTER, like this Monster truck.  The truck is a lot bigger than it looks in the picture.  Michael was not impressed that I made him pose in front of the truck, especially since there was a family in the car behind me having a good laugh at the tourists with the camera.
