I have a photo posted of my "future" son-in-law… Gabe, he’s 4 yrs old and in love with my oldest daughter (she’s 16). LOL
His older sister a friend of my daughters. Their family was talking the other night about how important it was to find the right person, and falling in love… He spoke up and said, "I already found MY girl… Alaura!"
I took their picture last year, so, I told them that I needed to take their picture again. Nate is all for it, Gabe starts to walk away saying, no…. I tell him, "it’s for Alaura…"
He turned right around and posed nicely…
My son Nick is a big Jimi Hendrix fan, so, I took him to Renton, where he’s buried and they have the Memorial. I posted a few photos of that too.
On a different note… The other night when I was in Seattle, I went down to Pikes Place to show Amber (she’s never been.) Parking there is a nightmare. I found a lot that was 10.00, but it was only open for 2 more hours. While I was reading the info on the pay box, I had a homeless guy come up and tell me that for 3.00 I could park on the street for 2 hours and some one was just pulling out. He offered to stand in the space so I could get to it. I took him up on his offer.
He didn’t ask me for anything, and he reminded me of a friend of my husband’s who’s bipolar when he’s off his meds.
Amber was freaked out that I would even talk to him. I appreciated his help.
I bought him coffee and a sandwich. While I was inside the place he found Amber and was talking to her. He asked where she was from and she told him, Santa Rosa, CA. He was familiar with the area… which really freaked her out.
I was going to go find him to give him the food, but he was with Amber. I could see the panic on her face, so I gave it to him and we left.
He was so excited and grateful for the food. I know I don’t have to deal with homeless all the time, so maybe that’s why I can be calm about it, but it was embarrassing to hear what other people were calling and saying to the homeless in the area.
Just thinking…. BIG HUGS, Steph
