How could the time have passed so quickly ?? Here it was, time to go home !! There had been hurricane warnings for the east coast, so we had been concerned about flights being cancelled --fortunately, all was well that morning. Luis picked us up at the hotel and taxied us to the Lisbon airport with plenty of time to get through passport checks and customs. I didn't have my paints and cosmetics packed to suit the security check point in the bag that I had intended to carry on -- away I went back to flight check-in to check the bag -- the alternative was to have them take all of those things away from me. Frustration set in -- it was another long day of travel -- home never looked so good.
I retired in 2005 after dealing blackjack and roulette in Las Vegas casinos for almost 20 years. I have one daughter and one grand-daughter who introduced me to altered art after my retirement. I was born in Iowa and grew up on a farm. I began the Memoirs of a Wildrose blog in the form of letters to my daughter to share information with her about family heirlooms and family history, plus remembrances of today, yesterday and yesteryear ! "Book of Douglas" blog is the story of my late husband, his life as I knew him, and our journey through life together. Ginny's Art blog was created to provide myself a record of my artsy creations.
