A Report on a Recent Trip
It's snowing! Finally! * No -- wait -- that's not snow! It's my head peeling from a little sunburn in Cancun. Still, besides the burn, we had a blast. The weather was wonderful. It only rained once, and that was when we were on the bus on our way to Tulum, a Mayan seaport ruin.
On Monday of this week Chris and Jessy arrived safely at her parents' home in Hettinger, on the far southwest corner of North Dakota. I would suppose that our Chris is making as good an impression on the Wolff Family as Jessy did on us.
That makes a good introduction to these reminiscences of mine:
The Andersons on Vacation
I remember the first time I saw the area that Chris and Jessy are visiting this week. It was back in the 70's and we decided to go back and visit Chadron, Nebraska, where I had taken a summer school college course in 1965. Our family by this time included four children at home. We had a perfect vehicle to take -- the Vista Cruiser station wagon!! We planned to head out to Grandma Cleo's and take off from there. I don't remember all the details, but two events do stand out in my memory.
Items of Interest
Another trip is coming closer: Hopefully Donna and Beaver can be on their way south -- and can celebrate their anniversary en route -- their 9th one, by the way. Beaver is getting hassled into leaving sooner than originally planned and teases that he thinks Donna will have them setting out next week if he doesn't hold firm. They will probably leave about noon on Thursday, the 23rd. I am looking forward to seeing them -- there haven't been many home folks to see us for quite a while.
Neat to hear that Kim has a new digital camera -- she likes it a lot and is going to take some pictures at the get together on Saturday (I hope) so that I can see the activity and make prints of it!!!! I think that will be fun!! Another way for us to feel like a part of the day's activities.
