Let me pre-apologize to my in-laws for making fun of their son but in the end I think they will agree.

We actually had a "Mayberry" moment today (which I need to rename as to not steal from Mayberry mom)

Sitting around having coffee this morning

I am still in pajamas

The doorbell rings

I freak a little because we don't know anyone here and I fear it's neighbors with brownies
& I'm still in my pajamas

It's the postman

He has a package for us

He ends it with,

"Well my name is Dennis and if there is anything I can do to help you, just let me know."

my husband:

"Yeah uh...Can you tell me what kind of tree this is?"

Oh my gosh!! That is so something my hubby would do. What a beautiful tree.

It's OK, I don't mind if you borrow. I might even know the answer to your husband's question. Shagbark hickory? I have two in my front yard. They are VERY popular with the squirrels.

I just got back from the Arboretum, but didn't see anything like this. How is it going ?!?!?!

I just saw you left a comment on my 100 Thing list, sorry to be such a boob about not getting here sooner.

We are in Madison which is...somewhere in Wisconsin, and I can't begin to tell you how far it is from you.

P.S. Fight the power, sister. Call the dining room Augustus Gloop!!! Nothing up here can weird people out...seriously, come see the picture of the thing that I found here this weekend (I posted about it today...)

Whoo hoo Mayberry Mom surpasses Dennis.

I have no idea how far you are from me either but I do know that you guys have a Trader Joes and I am going to miss that!

Tess I thought of you when it happened.
