Have you seen this little gem?

I almost don’t know what to say. Mr. Mack and I had heard about this and initially I was intrigued by the show because the part of Fort Worth Coco and I are from, had a very large gypsy family that own a vacuum repair chain in town and everyone knew who they were, GYPSIES. As if I had a clue what a gypsy was when I was growing up. What I did know was they were interesting. Elaborate. What they were most known for was the elaborate parties they had out at the cemetery near our house, which incidentally is also where Lee Harvey Oswald is buried. I can remember spending lots of time at the cemetery when I was younger. My mom has always found cemeteries interesting. Clues to the past. Anyway, the Evans family had very extravagant tombstones and they were always decorated and as a child that is why I found the cemetery
pretty interesting.

Here is a video with a little taste of this show.

The thing I find most amazing is their cultural values and traditions. very different than you might expect.

If you haven’t checked this out yet, set your DVR. You will not be sad.
