First and foremost, Happy 4th of July!! I hope y'all have a safe and happy holiday. Take a minute to remember why we are the home of the brave and the land of the free! And never forget your history lessons about this day and the song that Francis Scott Key wrote...sing it loud and proud y'all!
Random thoughts...here and there...
1 more day...til I get on the plane to the cities.
3 days until George and I meet again. Steph O' Dell would be proud...wonder if she's going?? I may try to find her just to ask her!
Funny how people interweave in your life...if you would have asked me 20 years ago would I be sharing relatives with my classmates from high school..I'd a told ya a BIG HONKIN' HELL NO!!
But as it turns out...Brian Drache and I share nieces and a Godchild..we are Godparents to Ashley. Keith Brazil and I share Aunt Colleen (Tommy's aunt and now my favorite of his aunt's!)
Still thinking about that class reunion...should I go or not. A part of me wants too..but a part of me says HELL NO. I just know in my gut that some of those folks still haven't grown...and that's sad...that we can't all get along. I still have some forgiving to do...Eric Fox at the top of that list. Some folks have been harder to forgive than others..depending on the scars they left on my heart..but I'm working it out, slow but sure...it's my own therapy minus the big bucks..lol. Those who were most cruel top that list. At the 40th, I am bringing Cheryl for sure...we already discussed that last night!
Speaking of Cheryl, Miss Alesha got her permit..and is having a blast with Tom's car that we sold them. Way to go kiddo! We have been waiting a long time for this day, you'll be just fine and parnelli-ing around in no time just like your mom and I used to in grandma Lil's candy apple red car!
And there's an anniversary coming up too...in 13 days! I'll be back in Minnesota for that weekend...move over Matt, you gotta share her dude!! Neil Diamond is callin' my name!
(Thanks mom for my plane ticket too!)
Well I'm off to get my scraproom cleaned up...hopefully get some scrappin' in today. Thank goodness I don't have to pack much for the trip!! (I haven't even started...prolly won't til tomorrow anyway!)
Chip...if you read this while you're on vacation...I hope you have fun and I want a detailed report on my desk when you get back!
Happy 4th of July Friday!!
