Last Sunday (Not Yesterday)

Last Sunday was Mother's Day.  I did not not go home and see my own mother.  I was over 2,000 miles away in Seattle.  Granted, my mother wasn't at home, either.  She was 450 miles away from home in Branson, MO.  So there was not guilt trip on the trip.  But I did call her.  TWICE.  And left two messages on her cell phone!

I went out with Cora's family to a quaint little restaurant filled with lace.  EVERY WHERE.
 My Family

Along with Cora and her daughter, we were joined by her mom, My New Niecesister, brother-in-law, and her niece and nephew.  I got to sit across from this little sweetheart.

Precious?  Isn't she.

But then, after this wonderful meal, something sad happened.  I had to go home.

Which meant another sad drop off @ Sea-Tac.  Well, there was some kissing in the parking garage. ;-)  Then, planes (Southwest), trains (CTA Orange & Red lines), and automobiles (a cabs) and the next thing I know, I'm back in my condo, on the phone, talking to Cora.  Which is so surreal, since I was just talking to her face-to-face.

Sounds like a happy trip! Hope your mom liked Branson-- it's not my cup of tea, but I guess if she spent Mother's Day there she likes it! Most people do-- I'm the oddball.

Glad you got to spend the time with Cora!

Those lacy lampshades look like jellyfish swimming over our heads!

Now I have the urge to sing "Under The Sea."

Leah - They'd better like Branson. THey've been going there 2 or 3 times a year for the last 25 years or so.

Cora - And I have "Mental Floss" - "I'd like to be a jellyfish / 'cuse jelly fish don't pay rent. / They don't walk and they don't talk / with some euro-trash accent." Ah, Buffett.

It sucks when you're face to face with your love, knowing that you won't be for weeks on end. But it's almost over for you guys.

@ Cora: If your niece was 30 years older, you've have some stiff competition (I think Scope is smitten).

I grew up about 45 minutes from Branson... Maybe I shouldn't admit that publicly though.

I'm glad you had a nice Mother's Day weekend!
