Lost in Translation, Part 3,482

In the car today, Yordi lets out a "Mommy! Look! Red Leek!"

I said "Oh, uh-huh." This never works anymore... they are not fooled... they know I have no idea what they're talking about.

"NO, Mommy! Red Leek!"

"Red Leek?"

"NO, RED LEEK!!"

"Saying it louder is not really helping me." So then I resorted to I Spy Red...

Red... car? NO
Red... truck? NO
Red... stop sign? NO
Red... flower? NO

I was wracking my brains there, casting about... red, red... she can't mean that the drying corn stalks have taken on a gentle red color and look like a red lake? NO

Then she says "Red Leek zzzt". Then I got it. Guesses anyone? I'll post the answer tomorrow. :)

I'm going to guess red leaves too.

Chris, I wanted to tell you, there is a festival in Rockford this weekend and we will have our dogs there competing in Dock Dogs... the kids might enjoy the show.

I think a bee of some kind. Kind of a buzzing noise...
