Embarking

In 1988, on a 110 degree in day in Houston, our living room was a chapel as Downtown Dad and I got married in front of 25 slightly soggy friends and relatives. A day later, we bid a 5 year old Bobby farewell as he boarded a Northwest bound plane on the first of his summer visits to his dad’s place in Seattle, while we boarded a Northeast bound plane for our honeymoon in Gettysburg.  It was, after all, the 125th anniversary of the civil war battles there.

Today, 2 more kids, 6 houses, 4 states, 5 dogs, 6 birds, 5 cats, 8 cars, 100 pounds, 15 jobs, and 25 Junes later, on a 72 degree day in Minnesota, our living room is a staging area as the two of us load up our trusty carship for a 9 day roadtrip/voyage/second honeymoon in Gettysburg.  It is after all, the 150th anniversary of the civil war battles there.

Tomorrow the adventure  begins   escalates  continues…

  1. Happy 25th anniversary! Enjoy your trip to Gettysburg. I would have loved to have our 4 years in Virginia match up with more of the commemorations marking the 150th anniversary of the Civil War battles. Such a complicated piece of our history, and so fascinating.
