The view from our kitchen window

I do feel bad that I haven't blogged in a long time, especially with more information about the house. So while waiting to use the phone, I thought I'd share the view from our kitchen window this evening:

And from our front entrance:

It's a little blurry, but you get the idea. Who cares what the wallpaper looks like?

This would never fly

There is a company here called Roach Foods.

My US readers know why I make this comment. I have yet to see a cockroach here, it's true. The restaurants that get cited 'round these parts usually have a mice infestation, or in some cases, rats. I don't know what folks would do if they saw one of our Texas flying roaches (called Palmetto bugs in the Deep South). And though the description says they don't fly much, they do it effectively - I've had enough of them fly at me to know.

I know about this company because I saw one of their trucks go by - a Roach coach, I guess (or would that be their employee shuttle?)
