HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN, JIGGEDY JOG...
(What Papa always said when we got back home from somewhere.)
I'm back from Ohio..Loved being in Boone...Loved the travel time in the car... Essence of the trip: Hanging out with Papa and Petie...Breakfast and coffee with Samuel...An afternoon at the winery....Observing Papa in his frailty....Kissing his head in the morning...
Going to Lowe's with Petie to pick out zinnias for her flowerbed...
Reading bits and pieces of our respective Miss Julia books to each other...
Laughing at Mom getting tickled as she read out loud...
Surrounded with rhododendrons everywhere.... Spent a lot of time looking at them closely...
Farmer's Market....Saturday morning and lunch with cousin, Bobby....
To see a performance of Pilobolus on the ASU campus Saturday night...AMAZING !!!
By chance, ran into my friend, Geraldine Plato....soooo good to see her and reconnect....
Time with Papa and Petie.....
The photos pretty much speak to the essence of the trip.....



Details to come as I get there in my mind....
Love to all.....

WOW! Sam looks all burly and stuff! Watch out, Mom, that one may be finding more than wine in NC! Glad you're back. I have a summer cold and, since I'm not willing to share, I'll call when it's over and we'll play!
