  1. Jen, I'm sure my sister would be okay with giving you hers if you don't. :)

    Larry, I got my weeks messed up -- we aren't going for almost 3 weeks so we should be here for your return trip.

    I doubt it's worth anything, Janet, but it and all the other furniture that didn't go with mom is going to Goodwill so I hope they get something for it.

    Mary, there were also some letters and legal papers in there that could add to the story -- nicely suggestive is the army form where my stepfather signed (possibly as part of being debmobbed from Europe in WWII) acknowledging that it was illegal for him to bring guns and ammunition back with him to the United States. It's also perfect because not to long after that he started his army-navy surplus business that he owned for the next 50 years.

  2. Hi, all. Lovely picture!

    Andi, I know it is a pain but it sounds like there are some really lovely things in your mother's stuff.

    Maddie actually went exploring today and Shadow sniffed her (though hissing all the time) so I am hopeful that progress is being made.

  3. Janet, It is the Tender Ties trilogy by Jane Kirkpatrick. Marie Dorion was native American but married to a French guide. She and her two boys went along with he and the Wilson Price party on the Astoria expedition and then later she went back and settled Oregon.

    Sacajawea makes an appearance in the books.

  4. Beautiful -- I'd love to be in a fog with Bebo. :)
