Canadian Visitors

Donald & Dianne Perry, Charleston, S.C.


When we had the cold snap last week I carried out my towels and tablecloths to protect my early blooming azaleas because I was expecting visitors from Canada today and I wanted to impress them with blossoms. Heheh. I made it! When I picked up my father and Dianne it was sunny and almost 70 degrees. What a glorious warm welcome to the lowcountry.

My father always built impressive swings for us when we were kids so I was proud to show him that I had carried on the family tradition of having a swing in my yard. 

I have taken as much time off as possible for next week to spend time with them. It is hard to take time off and still be in town. I've already been tracked down to deal with work issues and so far all I've been away for was a few hours to do the airport run. I may need to lose my phone :).

  5. Wonderful photo! Don't forget to get a shot of the both of you together! I always put that off until the last day (I guess mainly because I'm usually the one taking the photos) and then last minute stuff crops up and I don't do it! Enjoy your day together!

  6. Enjoy your folks' visit. And don't drive yourself nuts in doing so. They mainly want to spend time in your company, and the fancy meals and playing tourist are probably more than they need.

    1. I did the big home cooked pot roast and mashed taters last night with my son here. We ate out this evening to get them out. It has been a rainy day today.

  7. Joan, Do NOT answer your telephone while your folks are here; you need to spend time with them. Work can wait. You can and should rejoice in one another's company. As soon as the rain stops you can show your Dad how high you can still swing !!
