OH GOMERY!! **fans self**

Guys who draw are very hot. I should know. And the hottest is when they teach their wee little ones how to draw as well. I can see Gomery doing that down the road a bit.

What you say is truth, wealhtheow. HOT.

And if memory serves that same gentleman you reference with "I should know" also stitches broken stuffed animals. That's probably like the top slot on the hot scale. Gotta be honest here.

I love this blog. I thought the post of above made my day but I'm pretty sure it's the comments that really made my day. :)

Erika, you are a mind reader. I just spent a few minutes this morning trying to figure out how I can front-and-center comments in a better way (without tearing apart the very fabric of the Wilfair blog universe). The comments are my favorites! They need more top-level love.

He stitches stuffed animals. He fixes broken cabinets. He makes balloon animals. He has more-than-rudimentary plumbing and electrical skills. He takes photos of people at the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax. Mr. wealhtheow is AWESOME, and sorry ladies, he's all mine. He's actually kind of a mix of Monty and Gomery.

I love love love love love love love hearing this.

wealhtheow, this reminds me. You posted about a summertime road trip. I'll probably have suggestions for you, as road trips are not only a big area of interest for me but part of my job. Let's talk. Do you know where you're going? May I advise?

Well, mostly I'd be getting from DC to Humboldt. This is actually my, I don't know, 7th trip across country? As a kid I lived in CA while most of the relatives lived on the East Coast. But this is my first one as a grownup while not being dead broke (ie, driving out to DC after college). Plus I'll have the 5 yo with me, which means I'll definitely be taking my time and seeing some sights and experiencing some experiences.

Ohhh, experiencing some experiences. Have you been to the Black Hills/Rushmore/Badlands/Yellowstone? So many good things to say. OH! And the corn palace: http://www.cornpalace.org/

Every time I read the word "Humboldt" a new kitten is born somewhere in the world. It's that magical.
