Asian gourds make me famous
My last post showed some truly humongous Asian gourds hanging from the patio rafters at my neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant. A couple of weeks later I was surprised to find almost the identical photo in our local magazine, in the monthly feature that shows a strange place and challenges you to identify where it was taken.
I immediately sent them an email identifying the restaurant. And it turns out that I was the first with the correct answer.
I wish I could say that I got a free meal out of it, or even a free magazine. But I did become famous, at least to everybody who read the very teeny type on page 15 of the November issue of Louisville magazine.
