Family Circus

No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys. - Doug Horton


Redneck Storm Shelter

The rains over the past three days have had me carefully watching for animals marching two-by-two up 35E near my home. We are grateful to have taught our daughters about thunderstorms, and the tornados that are sometimes present with them here in Texas. My oldest daughter, 7 year old Halie, is a spirited child who (I'm sure) will one day drive a big truck with a decal across the back window that reads: AIN'T SKEERED!! After watching Twister last year, Halie asked about building a storm shelter for our family to take cover in, should we be faced with a F5 tornado here in the DFW metroplex.

Thanks for the picture, Dad!
