What a great idea! If your family has gotten on your very last nerve and the thought of even ten more minutes with them is more than you can stand – maybe this business can help! Apparently, they can loan out a new family to you. Come on – you know you want try.
(I do not know if they also offer permanent new-family placements, or if it’s a loan-only sort of operation.)
Oh, rural America, with your banners and flags and can-do spirit.
(I can actually only vouch for the banner and the flags.)
Historical Note: this was one of my first post-knee-surgery photos. I was using a cane, which was tethered to my left wrist. My camera was tethered to my right wrist. And I was walking down the middle of a brick street. My physical therapist would have been proud (let’s assume), as I was definitely making an effort to get back to my normal activities.
That day we drove home, I got fidgety and bored. I was tired, too. And cranky. Yes! I must have been just a JOY to travel with.
Anyway, I decided to shoot some intentionally blurry photos as we drove through Brownwood. It didn’t necessarily make me less fidgety, bored, tired, or crazy, but it diverted my attention from all that stuff for a few minutes.
