Life is not about getting to the destination, life is what happens to you on the way there.

Karry, this is so neat.

Last week I was drawing my Mamaw and Pappaw's house, or what I remembered of it, and their yard for the grandkids and I wrote little bits of info all around. It was kind of a weird picture when I finished because my memory didn't fill in all the areas.

It's really interesting to see the high tech version of it.

Hello Karry, Mom here... your memory is mostly correct, B U T for a few things. 1.) Phill & Sally lived the next block over, but you were close. 2.) Tornado did not hit that street... it was a street near the apartments or another time it was downtown. 3.) I remember signing you up for swimming classes and a seagull pooped on my head. What fun! 4.) Karl was the one who brought the Chicken Pox home... he was playing with the child down the street and I had no idea she had chicken pox until the mom called me. Then I watched Karl for the incubation period and he was okay. So after I think 21 days... I sent him down to the park to play. Big mistake. He came home with CP and then you all broke out with them. yuck! 5.) And YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU RAN AWAY FROM HOME! I would have been upset... I would have missed my little girl. I miss you now. Love MOM

I fixed Phil and Sally's house and the street that got hit by a tornado. However, you DID tell us that we could go play with that little girl because you said we might as well get it over with before summer ended.

I do think it was after Karl was exposed and the mother called you to tell you he was exposed. I think that's when you said "oh well" and let us all go play there.

That happened the same year we got my cat Daisy - remember?
