As I walked alone through the produce department of my local grocery store (as SLOWLY as possible…because, I repeat, I was ALONE), I just barely heard something from the bottom of my purse whistling The Andy Griffith Show theme song. No tune could better describe the person on the other end of that ringtone, and it always makes me smile to hear it. With his warm Southern drawl, loving spirit, and willingness to live his life in a mental “Mayberry” of sorts, my dad is basically a real-life Andy Griffith. Minus the badge. And the jolly, old aunt who does everything for him.
Because he has my mom for that
It’s been such an exciting week over here in my little “corner” of the web. I went to a few parties, even.
(Cough) Twitter parties. (Cough)
Okay, I lied. I didn’t even go to those. I’m still not 100% sure what they even are to be honest.
But, I thought it would be fun to share my week in pictures. Because, believe it or not, someone as asocial as me still does have an opportunity or two to find some fun things to photograph.
Such as this…
As you may have already gathered, my husband is in the military — the Air Force to be exact. But we currently live on an Army Post in Leavenworth, Kansas.
Yup. THAT Leavenworth.
I knew nothing about Leavenworth when we moved here except that they had some prisons — both a federal one and the military one on post. Also, I knew that we were probably as far away from a beach as you can get in the good ‘ole U.S. of A. Unless you enjoy waterless beaches, which I do not. And after his time in the Middle East, neither does my husband.
I have learned in the course of nearly one year here that Leavenworth is actually a lovely town with awesome antique stores, friendly people, a dentist’s office I want to visit daily, and at least one extra-attentive Parking Enforcement Officer.
I’m not bitter…
