      I knew I was going to get the phrasing wrong on that new role–but that you’d know what I meant.

      Agreed that time wasn’t enough but would venture to say that means you need to come HERE. You could catch up with so many, all in one swoop.

    I’ve caught up with the complete road trip now.

    Yes, I’d do the trip, the visiting, the sightseeing, the eating, swimming, larking around, but I would not do the camping or the heat. Definitely not the heat. Or the ladder climbing in a heat wave. Stuck to the outside of a dry, hot cliff, roasting to a turn without basting.

    Paco, you’re my man; a chap after my own heart.

    Lots of teachers in your family. Oh, and you really rock those velour shorts. I remember wearing those too…

    Yep. Siblings, even if I barely knew them.

    You had some great quotes about siblings that were so spot on. The photos were great too and reminded me of my family of three with the older brother and two younger girls (I’m the middle) except we didn’t go blind and wear fashionable glasses until we hit our late teens. We clearly shopped at the same store or sewed from the same pattern. I swear I am perfectly normal until I meet up with them.

    Um…it’s sort of a rule in Nebraska that you wear corncob hats to Husker football games. Just sayin. It’s not like I paint my face or anything like that…ok…well, just that once. Okay, twice.

    But, I’m with you about tea party members.

    And that is one big honkin’ cross in that one photo….

    Interesting to see you all growing up over the years!
    I thought just the same as you when I saw those images scratched on the rocks. They could have been by anyone. I wonder how they know their age. I mean what’s to say they were not done in living memory really? Though I hope not. I guess archaeologists have ways of finding out such things….

    thank you for sharing this. i am so glad you had this opportunity. sounds like it was a long time coming. what you express about the transcendent bond is what i wish for my own children and have since they were born.

    It is fabulous to see your smile when you are young and see your daughters smile. It’s like there is a guffaw waiting to burst from behind those closed lips. Or…simply the thought of “these people around me are all loony toons, but I will continue to maintain my composure through it all.” Lovely post joce..

    There is an amazing family resemblance among your siblings and you and your children as well. I love that you got to mix so much good-ness into this trip: travel, the WEST and family too.
