(Oops! I've just given away our ages!)
My mom just sent me the above photo - what good memories it brings back! While I was growing up, we went to Grand Cayman for Christmas every other year. 1965 was our first year there. I remember being dressed to the nines in a woolen outfit, Mary Jane shoes and with a heavy winter coat for the looooong plane ride there. We walked off the plane into the un-airconditioned Quonset hut terminal and all of us wished we had left anything wool at home! Our vacation home had a generator for electricity and we had to prime then pump the cistern for water. That first night Dad turned off the generator because it made so much noise. He couldn't turn it back on. Good thing there was a gas light in the living room. Quite primitive. And it was one of the very best Christmas vacations ever!
Helllllooooo Mom & Dad! I'm back! Well, for at least one post. (Yes, I actually continue this little old blog for you two more than any other reason - though I love having folks drop by and vice versa - don't y'all doubt that for a minute!) Haven't gone this long without blogging since I started this 2 1/2 years ago!
It's been crazy time of late. We just had our most wonderful second Blister Blogfest in Mathews, VA (which other attendees have been documenting brilliantly). From that I traveled to Alexandria, VA to spend some good times with my sis and bro-in-law. Now home again and my wonderful nephew/godson and sis-in-law are here for a few days. We three are off to NJ for a bit then I'm off to my Missourahhh soon thereafter. Whew! I'm exhausted from all this!
Busy busy busy - and I'm lovin' every minute of it!
P.S. Go here or here or here or here or here or here or here or here or here or here or here for VA Blogfest adventures. We certainly had many of them! (There are most likely other of my Blister chroniclers I'm sure I've missed. It's not intentional!)
