Howdy partner! Welcome to the Rhodehamel Ranch! I’ll be spending the next 3 weeks at my parents house while they are housesitting my brother’s house in Colorado. I’ve know my parents just over 41 years or so and they’ve been probably the best parents anyone could ask for. They just moved into this house a couple months ago. It’s not really a ranch, but it is one story and sits next to a farm so It kinda feels like one. While they are away I will use this time to work on my next shows. I reckon I’m going to be very busy and very lonely.
* This butterfly is actually a female. I thought it would sound more threatening as a male butterfly. This is also known as a Palemedes Swallowtail. I know my butterflies.
One really cool thing about this house is that is only about a half mile from Disney property. This means you can pretty much watch fireworks from the backyard every night! I made it my nightly routine to do just that.
My parents had this house built a few months ago. In Orlando, just about every new subdivision is clogged full of tan and off tan and dark tan and light tan houses. Boring. The nice thing about this neighborhood is the fact that all the houses here are actually colorfully painted in blues, greens, reds, yellow with colorful trim as well. For some reason, my parents chose… tan, with a light tan trim. I figured since I’m here awhile I’d brighten it up a bit. I can’t wait till they get home to their new bright pink house!
Well my three weeks are finally up. It’s been pretty lonely out here, but I got a lot of work done on my upcoming projects and shows. What are they? You’ll have to wait. It’s a secret. I made a nice big baby blue animal for the parental’s house, I’m sure it will fit right in with their decor. Thanks Mom and Dad!
