One of my favorite childhood books was From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Two siblings run away from home and live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They avoid the museum staff and enjoy a comfortable existence until. . . well, I can't give the whole plot away, can I? Anyway, this week I was still in Oregon for part of the week. While I was away, John, youngest son, and youngest daughter almost had their own protagonist moment.
Each April and October, General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints takes place. I enjoy listening to the various talks. Soon after the conference is over, I can review what I heard by reading the transcripts of the talks.
My friend (and long-lost cousin) Dyanne tagged me to answer some questions. And just right now, I figured out how mustaches fit it! I must ask you some questions. Must ask=mustache, get it? Boy, I am slow. And too lazy to change the post title.
How's that for a title? If this were Jeopardy, the correct question for the answer, "Barry White, Darth Vader, and Captain Hook" would be: "Which individuals portrayed the progression of John's illness this week?"
For the past eight years, John and I have been parents of college students. Even though our children are the students, we have learned a thing or two, also. For instance, I've learned that the kids love to receive finals survival kits, and that the most appreciated items are edible.
Last week, I took a break. I continued to blog, only because I had pre-scheduled posts for the A-Z Challenge. I even wrote my Ten Things of Thankful in advance. During that week, John and I celebrated our 28th anniversary by going on our first cruise. We turned off our cell phones. We left the computers behind. We lived life, unplugged. This week I've just been readjusting to "normal" life, but I still have things to say about our cruise, so this TToT post will be my own version of the vacation slide show of yesteryear. (I won't claim to be as entertaining as Charles Phoenix, but hopefully you'll want to stick around anyway.)
