My family of seven celebrated when we finally bought a VW bus- where we could at last have enough room. Before this time, we would all pack our sardine selves into a little VW bug- the Love-Too-Much bug. I remember one time we forgot to close the door securely and when my mother turned into the driveway on Middlebelt Road one of my siblings spilled out the door and landed shaken but unharmed onto the street!
My dad was a handsome man who used his serious face to control his wild bunch of children. When we got older, we realized the crinkled blue eyes were a give away. He was often laughing on the inside! Here's the famous serious Clint Eastwood expression of Dad's.
It's shocking to think that my mother was murdered here on the half-circle drive.
Travel makes you think about new beginnings and new possibilities, don't you think?
These Michigan Bradford Pear tree buds want to bloom
...may the season favor their growth...
May all life have its chance to become.
Thank you dear blogger friends for your kind words of support.
I felt you all ever-present as I spoke during the interview.
