A T-shirt, a Boy and Drought

It was a typical day. I was in Walmart and, as always, I stopped in the boys department to see if there were any good deals. On display, as though a spotlight were shining on it, was this T-shirt in Owen's size. The perfect
T-shirt, but not for Owen. I searched the store for an adult size replica because it screamed "Beemer!" It was the perfect T-shirt for my sister if only it were in her size. Purple tie-dye with a lizard on it. Does it get any better than that? It would've been way better if I could've found one in an adult size. But no, little boy sizes were all they had. So I bought one for Owen. He didn't like it but said he would wear it to church so I could take pictures of him wearing the T-shirt that I couldn't buy for my baby sister.

Outside, by the front door, to get some natural light,
Owen is losing interest.

Can you say drought?
I think we've lost the pine tree
that we planted when Mari & Beth were in Brownie Girl Scouts.

Enough is enough.
