(Ida and I in our old house)
Way back, long ago, when Josh worked as an operations officer at the airport, a different airport than where he currently works, he was in charge of sorting the lost and found. It seems that his boss must have known that we were starving non-newly weds with two children needing this special job within his job. Because I am a thrifty person and a trash rat, I made Josh promise he would bring home anything and everything in that lost and found box that was one second past it's holding date. It was totally legal and a bonus to the lost and found sorter. The heavens parted and the thrifty gods shined their used goods upon us many a time.....one Columbia winter coat for daddy, two North Face jackets for mommy and daddy, one winter coat for Emerson, one mp3 player, two booster seats, one laptop bag and a Cannon camera.
I found this picture on the computer, #252, that Emerson took with that Cannon camera and the memories flooded and swirled all around my tired brain making me pretty emotional.
It took being where we were to get us where we are.
Wow, I like them both.
Am I getting old?
