Travel

We must go beyond textbooks,
go out into the bypaths
and untrodden depths of the wilderness
and travel and explore
and tell the world the glories of our journey.
-John Hope Franklin

So much catching up to do! I thought I had the only cat who went nuts to be brushed. I thought he thinks he is a dog. Maybe he is not as strange as I thought him to be! Your little baseball cup was from a type of Kool-Aid's I recall from childhood! I recall the packages were very saturated in color. I do remember their being grape and orange, lemon. Each was a character. Your school photo journal is so precious! What a treasure. I so enjoy the pottery, the landscapes, the interesting architecture of your posts. Everything brings my childhood so close to my heart! I hope you have a lovely vacation! Elizabeth

Oh sweatheart, I read that you travel to Sri Lanka! How wonderful - it is quite possible that my husband and I will make a journey to Sri Lanka this year in December. (Our goddaughter Denishika lives there.) I hope you will have a great time there! Lots of hugs, Traude

Hey chicky!
As I write this, you are still off on your holiday. We got back yesterday, The week was so nice. I will email you more. I have been looking over your previous posts. Love the schoolyear scrapbook. I had one of those too. But I took it apart as a teen and put it all in a larger scrapbook. I can never leave well enough alone. I bought you a few little things in florida... so you must come this summer so I can give them to you. :^)
Yuck to the dust you had. That would be hard to live with.. do you put on a mask or scarf when you go out in it?
Write me when you get home.
love ya! and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
