I just wanted post this pic. It's one of my all time faves...Laurie-the Super Star of Canadian Lakes (I think that's where we were). The only thing that I recall from this summer was the sweet styrofoam egg that kept me from drowning. Seriously? Was that approved by the US Coast Guard? Probably not.
I did forget to say that when Laurie wasn't trying to get me to say cuss words (Remember? "I'm not taping it, I promise", but you couldn't hide the sad whirrrring of the ol' Casio tape recorder, could ya?), or threatening to run away every other day, she was "taking time out to do her little sister's hair" and making the most MTV "Cribs" worthy Barbie houses. To me, it was a lid to White Rain Mousse and a tube of Revlon lipstick. To her, it was a lamp! So innovative...well, at least it was to a 6 year old. She was just the coolest.
Sorry for all of the times that my terry cloth panties (nice, mom) made you nervous. I owe ya.
There's just so many memories, it makes me want to cry, and well, ya know "laughter through tears is ma' favorite emotion"! XOXO again. I swear, I'm done now.
