Did a cross country road trip with my 14 year old son and friend from FL to CA. In AZ, he saw a dry creek bed and I told him what it was. He couldn't comprehend why someone would make a water bed - without water. Too funny.

I am bookmarking this story. Starting to rearrange the outside and inside of my house - want a classical but edging on tropical as I live in FL. Leaning towards French but maybe the British Colonial style with French influence. Both in architecture and landscaping. So I have to really figure out the idea and concept before I start. sigh
