My parents are going through the Panama Canal today! Y’all in the approximate area of San Francisco will kindly wave seaward on the 17th when they dock.
And yesterday my mother bought jewelry, ostensibly in honour of my Grandpa. Given that my mother would have more limbs grafted on, if she could, to support the wearing of even more jewelry, I find this “sacrifice” on her behalf MOST amusing. Odds are my father’s clothing will have to be tossed overboard to accommodate Mom’s souvenirs. 🙂
