the trip

i was gone for ten days. i took my mom to see my son in lake tahoe, the prettiest place ever. and then we went to montana to visit relatives. a pretty place, too, but rather dusty. anyhoo, about ten minutes into the trip, i realized that my mom did not bring enough to do, so i gave her paper and pen and told her to write about all the funny things that were happening. i worked on the envelope.

when we got to tahoe, i was excited to go to the post office. there is no mail delivery around tahoe. everyone has to go to the post office. when i walked up to the counter to purchase one stamp, the postal worker exclaimed, "Wow, we need to find a really good stamp to go with THAT envelope." He pulled out some of the cartoon stamps and the pixar stamps. and we decided this one was the best fit. i was so happy to have a postal employee taking such an interest in stamp selection.

the addressees are all people who work at the des moines art center. sorry diane or diana, i never remember if you are e or a.

i like the idea of doing word jumbles for families...  that would be a good idea for a holiday card and envelope.
