And lo there came a woman from the west. She was a goodly woman and didst try always do what was pleasing in the eyes of the Lord… (well I did say TRY!)
In the spring of the year our woman of the west didst converse with a dear sister who’s name was Rebecca, and lived in the land known as LALA Land (A land known for it’s abundance of oranges, and silicone). She, being close to the woman’s heart along with her "big bubba" of a husband is much loved among the family of the woman of the west. For lo there had come a proclamation to let the people know that "big bubba" had recently been ill but was now feeling much better. This was joyful news to the woman and those she had begat…
And Rebecca didst rejoice that her "big bubba" was doing well. She sayeth to the woman of the west… yea let us go and tarry together in the warm sun and sandy beaches in the land of Puerto Vallarta. Thou wouldst only need to fly-est thyself down and I wouldst see to all of thy other worldly needs. (A very generous offer indeed!)
The woman of the west didst think upon this offer and didst proceed to do her famous but rarely seen "happy dance."
The youngest daughter of this woman, upon seeing this "happy dance" didst implore her mother as to the reason for this dance.
When informed, there was much wailing and knashing of teeth done by said daughter, for spending time with Rebecca of LaLa land was a much enjoyed treat, and thus she was wont to be included in such fun and good times…
But yea verily the woman of the west and her daughter had forgotten one very important item… The governing laws of the land had recently changed and thus to travel to the warm sunny land of Mexico, the citizens must now have what is known across the land as a Passport.
Indeed it has been many years since this woman has had a passport, and so, she then joined in with her daughter with much wailing and rending of garments, both hanging their heads with much woe.
This woman from the west, and both of her daughters have vowed to obtain the proper traveling papers that the laws do so specify, and will, take-eth up Sister Rebecca’s offer next time!
How is everyone else doing? BIG HUGS, Steph
