Never Underestimate an Old Man Who Is Also a U.S. Veteran

I’m not very good at the art of journaling on time… Well, not unless it has to do with hospital stuff, in which case I have no choice. When it comes to recording (and sharing) life’s bits, I like to take my time. Not just because I can be mildly lazy, but because I like to digest experiences before I write them out.

That’s the reason why I’ve yet to write a post about our recent trips to Salt Lake City and Friday Harbor. We went to Utah to celebrate my Father-in-Law’s 90th birthday. The picture below is not from the celebration, but do I need a reason to share the fantastic t-shirt my Mother-in-Law got for her love?
Never Underestimate an Old Man

It was wonderful to see my Piano Man share a bit of scotch with his parents…

…and rage about a certain wild-haired politician with his father.

There was time for with visiting old friends…

…and sharing fun anecdotes with former colleagues.
Old Colleagues

No hometown visitor should go without ice cream…

…or without paying their respects to those who have gone before.

After Salt Lake City, we flew… drove… ferried… to Friday Harbor. I’ll save those details for future posts. All this mind-travel can be quite exhausting. We were so tired on our way to the island, too. Most of my bits were issuing wild curses into the wind. Except my teeth… my teeth never got the memo.

  1. There can never be a dull moment with the loved ones. MILs have been the subject of ridicule but it is a matter of reacting to each other. A positive reaction is the way to having a friend for life. Thanks for sharing Magaly!


  2. I am happy to see your family being so cordial to each other – I could feel through the pictures.
    Lovely smile, Magaly , in a salfie :)) Your smile, hehe.
    I quite missed your “about-life” posts…
