  • I have many, many ‘Game of Thrones’ theories and prognostications, but I shall only share one for today – The Mountain will defeat The Hound; however, Sir Brienne of Tarth will defeat The Mountain.
  • The amount of time I’ve spent in the last two weeks reading various Wikis on ‘Games of Thrones’ would stagger you. It’s a wormhole which pulls me in. I read about one entry which causes me to open tabs for other entries and tabs on those entries and the next thing I know I have over 20 tabs opened which I’ll probably never get to.

    The house in Buda…wow! Did you see in the description, “Historical Texans burial plot in front yard.” Now that’s a selling point! Also of note, the man cave in a shed, to get away from the house decor. Goodness!

    Always thought is I won the Lottery, I would have my own Wienermobile built and make it my daily driver. Love that vehicle.

    OMG, the house in Buda. At least it doesn’t show dirt with that decor. There is so much going on, you could hide a Tauntaun from Star Wars in those rooms. Would blend right in like camouflage.

    That’s a Budaful house!

    I think the only time I’ve seen the Weinermobile in person was in Colorado during college. I was driving some youth group teens to an activity or event of some kind, and we spotted the Weinermobile at a rest stop in the mountains. (Maybe I-70?) We stopped and the driver gave the kids Weinermobile whistles.

    And now, I’ll have “I wish I were an Oscar Mayer weiner…” in my head for the rest of the day. Ugh.
