Joan, who we spent many happy hours with when we first moved out here 26 years ago is back visiting with her sister Diane this week. Diane’s son is interning at Microsoft for the summer and after spending part of yesterday with him after they flew in, today they relaxed and wandered West Seattle…. beach combing and sitting at sidewalk cafes while we caught up on some of the best stories of the intervening years ; )
It didn’t really feel like much time had elapsed since she lived down the road from us at all…….old friends, you know what they say ; )
Oh, and it was very nice of the US Navy to send the John C Stennis aircraft carrier past our windows for them to see earlier today along with our neighborhood bald eagle and a few cargo ships from the other side of the Pacific Ocean


About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
