Late night visitors

Tonight, while my son was unloading his massive supply of college junk from his car, a woman pulled up in an SUV and called to him. "Excuse me, sir," were her first words.

He was embarrassed since he didn't have a shirt on, and wasn't used to being called "sir" by anybody, much less a lady who was older than him.

She complimented him on our kitchen.

So he knew what to do. He passed her along to his mother for the full kitchen discussion, which went on quite a while.

(We recently re-did our kitchen, at considerable but not astronomical expense, and it came out great.)

So my wife invited the woman and her daughter in, and gave them the full kitchen story, which is quite a saga as my wife tells it. Well, it was her project, her final design, and she likes talking about it.

All this happened around 10 at night.

So I guess my house is a kind of tourist attraction now. I'm thinking of charging admission to recoup the expense.

Just kidding. It would never recoup the expense. Only selling the house can do that. And I'm not in a hurry to do that, either.

Rhyme of the day:

I'll stand outside and holler:
You can come in for a dollar!
