On Saturday Ron and I made a trip to the local mall. We were strolling through the mall doing a little window shopping when he nudged me to look straight ahead. I looked and noticed two young women walking toward us who looked exactly alike. It took me about 10 seconds to realize those young women were MY young women and I had not only not recognized them as such I didn't know who was who either. Now that hasn't happened to me in a very long time! As twins they have always gone through phases of looking alike to looking distinctively different but I have never not recognized them as my daughters. I decided right then and there that I haven't seen them together enough and immediately planned a Sunday dinner at my house for the next day. So yesterday I had the whole family over including my brother for dinner. Mmmmmmmm it was good if I say so myself. I cooked 2 pot roasts, glazed carrots, fresh green beans, roasted asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes and rolls. We ate like pigs and I memorized my daughter's faces. Julie's hair is about an inch longer than her sisters. That's all I could come up with! Hope she doesn't get a haircut or I'm stumped again.
A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for a homework assignment...
After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:
Dear Ms. Davis,
I want to be very clear on my child's illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This drawing is of me selling a shovel.
