Mothers and Daughters

I am posting this today because I'm off on a long weekend getaway with my two daughters. Just us girls!

My oldest daughter's husband is treating us to a trip to New York City. He is an absolute doll for doing this for us! Mrs. H (the teacher) and I leave from Tampa about 8:30 and arrive JFK around 11. Mrs. McD gets in from Salt Lake City about thirty minutes later and the adventure is on!

Soho shopping tour tomorrow... Odd Couple matinee Sunday then Tavern on the Green for dinner... Monday shopping, shopping, shopping and dinner at a culinary school where a friend of Mrs. H attends. All courtesy of Mr. McD. It's been a few years since just the three of us have spent quality fun time together, so this should be great fun!

I am blessed to have such wonderful children. Both my girls married extremely kind, thoughtful, sharp, ambitious young men. And sisters are a special breed. My sister and I live hundreds of miles apart but are still closer to each-other than anyone else.

My pictures today are of my mother, sister and me.... the first around 1972 and the second on our cruise in February. See you when we return with pics of the girls and me!

PS: That's not a blemish on my sister's face in the tip photo...that was a spot I couldn't remove on the original photograpy.

Wonderful pictures......

I hope you have a marvelous time in New York. Remember to bring your flannels. It might just be a bit colder than Florida!

Be safe, and don't talk to strangers!
