The Pyramid

It took my sisters and me a really long time to discover we had the perfect number of sisters to make a pyramid.

Christmas in San Diego, 2001

It took My Girl Nancy about 17 seconds to discover that although we didn't have enough people to make a pyramid, a cooler would make a fine substitute......

Summer in Watch Hill, 2011

She's ingenious, My Girl Nancy.

She's also really good at asking strangers to take photos.

No matter where we are: the beach, the deck, the ottoman, Nancy yells, "Photo Shoot!" and everyone falls into position.

The dunes at Watch Hill?

Why not?

She sets the camera up on a cooler, she sets the camera up on a chair, she sets the camera up on a deck railing. To the same successful result:

Smiles, everyone! Smiles! What fun-who's the extra girl?



Me, You, or Ellie said...

Zoe's friend Lizzie. Two of the cutest almost-15-year-olds you'll ever meet.


Me, You, or Ellie said...

Now is that an Oscar cooler? hee hee hee.

You're looking good, Ellie! As is Nancy and her whole crew. Love the shots. However, where oh where was Mistah? It's not like him to miss a photo shoot.


Me, You, or Ellie said...

Good question, Beth. It was My Girl Nancy's birthday and I zipped out to Watch Hill to meet the Birthday Girl & Co. in the afternoon but, alas, Mistah was working.

He *did* get home in time to see everybody, and take us all out to ice cream in the Westy, though. So all wasn't lost.


Me, You, or Ellie said...

Working? Do tell!

Mistah's been doing his freelance writing-and-photography thing for years now. That day it bit him in the butt.
