The week before Taylor and I left for Connecticut I had to drive around in Northern Texas with an operator that collects water samples for their city. Part of the drive was pretty much in the middle of nowhere and she slowed down as we drove past this farm. She was straining around looking for something and suddenly pointed, “There.” It was camel. Not like a pretend one for a nativity scene but a real camel just sitting by the lake on this farm. I was too stunned to take a picture.
