When Worlds Combine - great Back Yard Visitor story from Thanksgiving Weekend
Family show up in back yard, mother says "didn't we see you at the Orange Show in Houston?" Yay, Texas!
The son pipes up and says: "Yeah, and she was on ArtLand, too..." Yay, Film crews that come through Lucas!
Mom says, "Can I get your picture together with my son?" I say sure, she clicks, and says to son: "Now you have one with the Big Little Big lady, AND Bill Nye!" Yay, being as cool as Bill Nye the Science Guy!
I say to son: "Good combination, Art and Science. They go together really well..." and little guy says: "Well, Leonardo was good at both, I don't see why I can't be..." Yay, 12-year-old liking and undersanding DaVinci!!!
So, we talk about more big and little stuff, I give them all Wooden Nickles, and I make a pact with the son to learn to say the complete longest-named town name, and it'll be our greeting next time we meet... Yay, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogery
