It all started when I got laid-off from my job of 8 1/2 years. The attorney I worked for joined forces with his sister in another Town..they didn't need a secretary there, and it was way too far for me to drive anyway.
Then, I went for four days to a wedding in Virginia. It was my daughter's boyfriend's sister who got married. I ended up knowing quite a few people there from high school. Was very interesting. I posted pics of the dresses I made in an earlier post. Here is a pic of my daughter Shannon and me in our dresses. These dresses were made from the same pattern!:
Meanwhile, my cousin who lives in Iowa has been wanting to get together with me for years. Our family is dwindling and we thought we better get together sooner than later. I haven't seen him in 25 years and we really missed each other. He sent me a round-trip ticket to Las Vegas!!! All expenses paid by him. Boy, I truly owe him. We had so much fun. Spent two wonderful, quiet, exciting, fun days. Cried and laughed over all our past.....
This was my favorite exhibit, the Mirage had a place called The Secret Garden. They had gorgeous Lions and these sweet dolphins.
