Oh, New York. Sweet New York. God only knows we can't go visit there without having some kind of disaster. Last time my mother shattered her hip and it took us a week to get her back home. This time a natural disaster was coming straight for us...Hurricane Irene. But we survived and had some great family time. We were able to finish laying Mom to rest before the Hurricane hit. The other half that was not laid to rest in the ocean in Florida is now lying peacefully with her Mother. It was so nice to see the family and to be able to say we survived Irene.
We were able to even go to the beach the Friday before Irene hit. It was a beautiful day. The water was rough and freezing. We are used to the Gulf temps. Not the Arctic!
Love those curls
