The portraits were done in 1974, in Disney World, when our family and the Cronin family went to Florida together on the AutoTrain, and had the Time Of Our Young Lives.
But that's a story for another day.
The story for this day is when one is trying to hang things on a wall symmetrically, one has to measure the back of the thing-to-hang, because every wire is attached to the back of a photo or portrait or painting slightly differently.
Dad taught me that.
Sigh. Thanks, Dad.
I'd forgotten to bring work clothes, so whilst hanging and spackling and sanding I innocently asked Mom, "Do you have an apron I could wear over my dress?"
Oh, did she have an apron.
It's still got Dad's pencils in the pocket.
No only did I have a great teacher, I have had a lot of practice this winter:
|TheDowd said if Ledgie was a person |
he'd have me arrested for stalking.
And if you think this is cool, just wait 'til you see the Ledgie Loo after the Tall Ships Parade on Saturday . . .
Happy OpSailFest, everybody!
