because pour porter told me to...

esmé and i stood out in the cold and waited for the discovery shuttle to fly over us. shivering because she was in sequined tap pants and the thinnest canyouseemyhoobieboobies sweater and because i was made for eighty-five and above. temp, not age.

why do we have to stay out here and see this? she grumbled.



and i thought about it and then dumbed it down to this: because that shuttle carried us to amazing places, and we owe him a proper goodbye.

she smiled hard and bit the inside of her cheeks and asked if i was crying.

no, i answered.

me, too, she said.

in case you'd like to see what we saw, here...




pretty badass, yes?

p.s. the girlies three are getting haircuts tonight...kind of major ones. remember the kind of hair appointment where you took in a beautiful photo of some model or actress or someone who looks strikingly like peter pan {or wait. is that just esmé?} and you expected to leave the hairdresser looking exactly like that picture? i think this is that kind of a haircut. makes me nervous. i'm keeping my fingers crossed for these little women of mine. xoxo

Know what is also badass? My father in law flew that space shuttle jet for years before he retired! He went around the world showing off our space shuttle to people, and he would bring it back to its home after it would splash down in the ocean. He taught astronauts to fly so they could fly the shuttles. Cool or what?

Don't get anyone in Houston started on Johnson Space Center not receiving one of the shuttles. :(

PS: My maid is at my house today. I love her.

Watching the shuttle today brought back memories of standing on the playground of Greenbriar East Elementary in May 1976 watching the Concord(s) come in to land at Dulles from the first transatlantic supersonic flights.

My dad worked at Dulles at the time so I got to go see the Concord up close on the tarmac. No such perks witht he shuttle - I miss my dad :)

Oh, sweet Karey is back.

We had some extreme haircuts over here last week. All's well and no team of therapists was required after. So fascinating, watching them try on different things, figure out who they can be. . .

Awesome shot!
About those haircuts...remember Fantastic Sam's when the "stylists" had weird names, like Peaches and Bambi and yes they could have possibly been strippers? My mom chose said establishment to indulge in my 3rd grade, I want to look just like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance moment...I cried the entire way home, I looked just like my Memaw...
I know Miss E will be a beautiful Pix.

Talk about withdrawals...I hold my breath and cross my fingers every. single. morning. when I click on your bookmark.

As for the haircuts...I don't recall ever taking a photo, which is probably why my 5th grade perm had me stepping out of the salon as orphan Annie's twin and I swear to God my hair is still curly!

Glad you're back!
