I just got home after a trip back east. My youngest brother is home after serving a year in Iraq, and my second youngest brother just joined the Marines. Mom wanted her children together, so I crossed the Appalachian mountains to spend some long overdue time with my family. Unfortunately, Dad had to stay home in Georgia to help take care of my Grandparents.
On the way back to Kentucky, I stopped by an old high school friend’s house to visit, and wish her and her husband good luck with their baby scheduled to arrive next month.
Editorial Note: Larissa gave me permission to post her picture 8 months pregnant, in a bathing suit during the July heat.
It was nice seeing my family and friends. The trip east was a reminder that there are many many unfortunate folks who are not lucky like me and do not get to live in Kentucky. It’s good to be home!
