Visitors!   Leave a comment

My sister Sally and her family — husband Rick and daughters Emily and Rebecca — are in California from St. Louis.  They couldn’t stay long, but we had time for a nice visit.

The girls are growing at an astonishing rate.  They are definitely young ladies now.  They showed me pictures taken in Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo a couple of years ago, and one they had just taken.  I couldn’t resist showing them.

If you haven’t heard of Bubblegum Alley, it’s a narrow little alley in San Luis, where a slightly gross tradition has grown up.  If you are a bubblegum chewer, you are supposed to leave a . . . calling card . . . on the alley walls.  Over the years, I’m surprised the alley hasn’t gotten too narrow to walk through.

Anyhow, here’s the picture from before.  Emily is on the right, Rebecca on the left.

And here is the one from this visit.  They were careful to pose in the same positions.

Emily’s not too much different . . . but just look at Rebecca!

They are great kids, and we really enjoyed their company.

Purple Puppy has her vet visit — and he visits them; what a great vet — Saturday.  Then we shall see what’s next.  I’m thinking Peaches might be a good name, but that’s by no means final.
