Do as Texans do! So many of the houses we look at have critters . . critters on the wall, over the doors, on the fence posts. Deer heads, deer horns, buffalo heads, all kinds of ugly, brown stuff. I figured if I’m going to live in Texas, and is looks like there’s a good chance I am, then I’ll put some kind of critter over my fireplace.
Last week while out running errands . . actually I was lost and turned around in a parking lot and found this:
I loved it and I wanted it so Saturday Vince and I stopped by to look at it. He didn’t like it at all! I knew I should’ve just bought it and brought it home. Notice the dachshund standing behind the longhorns?
And just so I can say “Told you so” . .
This is an actual real life size, to scale, Texas grasshopper! About three feet wide and two feet tall! Well, maybe that’s how big they seem when they scare me half to death in the yard and maybe they’re not really this big but they seem this big.
