Laura and I checked out the White Rock Home Tour on Sunday benefiting Hexter Elementary School. The houses were pretty spread out, so how could Hexter include all of them? Just a question.

I was struck by the artwork on Woodgrove – all done by the owner of the house, James Colley. I was also struck by the master closet only containing men’s clothes. So, I asked. The owner, as it turned out, and he just said “The woman’s clothes have been relocated. To another house – they used to fill the whole space.” So, I put my foot in my mouth once again. Just when I was going to try to get a deal on a painting.
