Driving across Nebraska, Krista suddenly shouted “Gorillas!”
There were gorillas, so I stopped to investigate. Lawn ornaments seem to be popular in the Midwest, but I hadn’t seen that many gorillas. I wasn’t prepared for the name of the business. In the little town of Tekamah, there is a shop called “Bitter Lawn Ornaments.”
This place reminded me of a story told by Tom Waits on the 1999 tour—Angry Flowers (posted for a limited time for your edification if you haven’t heard it). But “Bitter’s Critters” didn’t really seem to be all that dissatisfied.
