She says, “Mint?!” Nope that’s not mint, don’t eat it! She is so used to picking and eating things from the garden, wherever we go she tries to sample the landscaping.

The Spy’s favorite is what he calls “The Cowboy Town” which is Faust Historic Village (preserved homes/structures built 1840-1888).

Very picturesque
