I am participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge. Thanks to the co-authors of Two Writing Teachers for creating this supportive community.
We were on the road for about eleven hours yesterday, making our way home to PA. Classic Rock provided the background music, sparking the recollection of many memories. From time to time we received emails and messages from friends and family alerting us to the weather and wishing us safe travels. But there were also some random messages (including one birth announcement) and these:
From my daughter:
Do you still have my purple prom dress?
(Please keep in mind that Ann has not worn that dress in about 20 years! But, she works at a high school, so maybe she got invited to the prom!)
From my daughter-in-law:
Baby Brains plays guitar! How amazing!! We read it today and Alex listened for the whole book!
(I sent two books to my grandson recently, Baby Brains and Baby Brains Superstar.)
And this from a friend:
Are you on the road?
(Reply): Just got in to NC. Having peanut butter crackers and martinis for dinner tonight!
Are you out of money?
Traveling a few hours today before the snow will stop us. Hopefully home tomorrow.
