Lost in the Jungle

Curlymop watching the leopard pace, through the viewing window - Portland Zoo

The summer has become an adventure. With Grandchildren.

I've been blessed with the opportunity to visit them all, and have some visit me.

For over a week I had my 12-year old Red-headed girl, 7-year old Goober, and 5-year old Curlymop.

Wednesday night I kissed two of them goodbye and sent them flying away home on a jet out of Portland International Airport

Curlymop is safe at home with her mommy in Portland.

Yesterday I headed home and was accompanied by Karmyn and her children . The Caboose and Jammin' rode with her and my passenger (and her 4 plus hours of jibber jabber) was Buttercup.

In the car:

Buttercup: (constant talking)
Grandma: What did you say honey?
Buttercup: I wasn't talking to you grandma, I was talking to myself.
Grandma: Ooooh.

I have another date with Curlymop in early August when Amanda drives the support vehicle for WR's bicycle trip on the Olympic peninsula.

Later in the month I have another week with grandchildren while their parents go to Hawaii for their wedding anniversary.

Last Sunday I had lunch and a few hours with two "old" school chums - including Phil, whom I hadn't seen in over 40 years. That was a kick!

Keeping busy with all the other things, too.

Hope to be back to blogging regularly this fall.

Fancy butting in on Buttercups private conversation with herself! Shame on you! LOL! I talk to myself all the time (well I think out loud a lot) the kids think its hilarious.

I absolutely love that photo of Curlymop, I have one similar of cameragirl when she was little with a tiger. Its gorgeous!

Sounds like you're having a blast. I love the viewing window at the zoo. So much better than looking through bars.

Dear Pamela ~~ What a great time you and the grands are having - making wonderful memories for you all.

I so enjoyed your July 4th post and the wonderful guest of honor and his great memories. Good timing on Independence Day.

Thanks for the One Smart Fellow etc tongue twister. I wonder do any of the younger folk try tongue twisters. I doubt it - it' a different time now. take care.
Love, Merle.
i've missed you!

sounds like it has been an eventful summer!

That photo is just a wee bit disconcerting because I can't 'see the window !'
