From "The Conversation Piece"

Here's a little tidbit from a book titled, "The Conversation Piece", authored by Bret Nicholaus and Paul Lowrie. Lynn and I thought we'd share with you some of their conversation pieces and see if their ideas could get you talking or 'thinking' of things you might not consider unless the question was asked. Here is the conversation piece for this week.

"Suppose you owned a large home in the country with a huge circular drive. If you could place one thing in the center of that circle to greet your guests as they approached your home, what would it be?"

If you know me, you wouldn't be the least surprised to find a giraffe enclosure in my circular space that would give me and my house guests the rare opportunity of a man/woman/child-to-giraffe and giraffe-to-man/woman/child relationship.

Lynn, on the other hand, wants just a nice tailored yard with grass, flowers, and bushes that he doesn't have to take care of but can utilize when he needs a bit of fresh air, a little serenity, and a quiet place to think. :)
