Highlights and Zoo Lights
Five seconds after walking in the door
Mom: Do you have a washer and dryer at your place?
Me: No. Why?
Mom: Okay, we’ll get that coat cleaned up while you’re home.
Poem from my grandmother to my cousin Meredith:
I shall never forget how much you meant to me when you were five,
You made me feel so young and alive.
Now you are mature and have many teenage friends,
Please see me more often before my life ends.
Dad: When I lived in Mexico, any rain would just evaporate before it got halfway to the ground. There are 380 days of sun each year in Mexico.
Cousin Fred: I remember the last time we went to Mass! It was when Super Mario Galaxy came out, which was in 2007.
Last dinner together, Sunday night
Fuzzy gloves and large chip clips were pawned off on the grandkids as stocking stuffers.
Finally, I stopped at the actual zoo for a break on my drive back to Columbus today (it’s located north of the city). I saw exactly 1 of the 600 species there, but the lights were pretty.
