This morning our John left to study in Shanghai, China, for two months, or one college summer semester. He will be taking 6 hours of Chinese and 3 hours of international business and will have an internship with a Chinese company. He found this photo a couple of months ago of him (the baby), Raf on the right, Raf's mother, Margaret, holding John, Raf's dad, Ralph, at the back, and Raf's sister, Mary Lynn, on the left, taken in the summer in our back yard in 1987. John was about 6 months old at the time. Now he's 21! Go safely, my precious child, and come back to us safely.
Illustration Friday's prompt last Friday was "Seed". I finally got around to drawing a seed...or at least the fruit containing the see of the mulberry tree. This reminds me of John because he, as well as an assortment of birds, likes to eat the mulberries.Right now we are awaiting the contractor to look at the bathroom and the sheds to see about repairing them. We've waited for several days. It is now 3:30 pm, and he said he would be here today right after 1 pm! I keep thinking, if I had just showed up at school whenever I felt like it...hummm...do you suppose they would have kept me as a teacher? Of course not! Yet, so many people do not care about time...if it's other people's time! Or money!
Oh, well, that's my rant for the day!
