A Happy Surprise

One of my cousins, Clara, who I (and mom and Eddie) stay with when we go to Fairbanks, surprised me yesterday by saying that they were on their way down from Seattle, where they were visiting Clara's sister, Robbie. Mom and Eddie and I usually take over Darrell's room. Clara was with her husband, Ed, and their three sons, Louie (32 years old), Charles (26), and Darrell (22). Sometimes, Clara and Ed stay with my folks, but mom and dad got a little Chihuahua/Papillon mix that's really excitable. So, I offered to let them all stay with me, so they took me up on my offer!

It's kinda fun - my house usually only has me and Eddie and occasionally Scott and his daughter. Now, there are 6 or 7 of us under one roof! This is when I realize that I don't have enough seating or even table space . . . but luckily, they're really flexible, not picky, and are happy to just be able to park for awhile. They've been driving all over - Colorado (where Ed grew up), New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada.

A happy surprise . . . I'm just glad that I can finally return the favor!

Hi Carver,
It's been a good week-end . . . I've enjoyed getting to know my cousin's sons a bit more. I hope you had a great week-end, too!
