This week flew by..I know it was a short work week because of the Labor Day holiday on Monday and Wednesday I didn't have to work because I was given a low census day....but it still seemed busy to me and I was tired for some reason...old age probably. But there was nothing really blog worthy to take a pic of or write home about. I did put this in a frame and hung it in my kitchen...what is it? Well, it's a menu that my Mom and Dad brought back from Italy when they went there in 1971. They were on their 25th wedding anniversary trip to Europe. My Mom admired this menu on the wall of a restaurant and my Dad asked the waiter if they could have it...sometimes you just need to ask. Dad was a charmer anyway and I'm sure the friendliness of the waiter to Americans was a huge factor too! I had never seen it before. When we were taking a day bed out of storage to take home I spotted this. I did just what my Mom did...admired it..and then what my Dad did...asked if I could have it. She said "sure"...it now will hang on my wall until someone admires it, asks if they can have it and I say "no way, go to Italy and get your own!"
One of the pics I didn't get on the last post was this one of Craig and my Mom...a tiny fragment of time that's precious as gold.
