Animal Crackers and Hobos

Tonight Mark and I discovered that our cat, Pork Chop likes animal crackers.

We also discovered that when Mark doesn't shower and goes out in public, people think he's homeless or, even worse, that he's a menace to society.

Driving home from Houston the other weekend a state trooper pulled us over. Mark looked scruffy and unkempt, opting to take a shower when we got back to Austin. The officer pulled him out of the car and questioned me. He gave me the impression he thought I'd been abducted. He finally let us go with a warning when I told him Mark was my husband. Then Mark told me tonight over dinner that on his Sunday walk a group of Boy Scouts in the park pointed at him and said, "Hey, watch out for the hobo".
