I swear this is true. I had dinner with Peaches and Shrub while in the USA. Yup, real names. BUT it gets better. His father's name was Bushy-no lie. And, their son's name is Branch who named his son Reed. Can you believe this? Add to this that if I gave you their last names you would recognize it because it is a VERY prominent family who is responsible for much of the development of the Texas coast.
I just love when things like this happen. I chuckle inwardly for weeks about the quirkiness of life. And then my mind leaps around thinking of names for their grandchildren like Rose, Oleander, Violet - oh heck, the list is endless isn't it?
