Today I arrived in the Dallas area for a week of school visits. Tonight my parents and grandpa drove over from East Texas(and Louisiana) to have dinner with me in Richardson. My cousins, Kay and Taylor, joined us, too.
After dinner, Taylor asked, "When you were young did you like animals?"
I told her I did. "I even liked bugs. I still like bugs."
She said that she did, also, except for spiders.
It must be in the genes, I thought. Then she said, "I like snakes, too."
