July 4 – Got up this AM at 5AM, didn’t want to miss the Olympic Torch-bearers going along Gulf Boulevard. I left the apartment at 6AM and didn’t see a soul going. I thought if it is such a big deal where is everyone?
Well, I found out everyone was already along Gulf Boulevard two-deep as far in either direction you could see. It was kind of exciting.
Another thing you children miss is knowing all of your cousins and Aunts and Uncles. As a little girl, I can remember that so many of our relatives would spend weekends visiting us. Mom would cook such luscious meals and we would have such a good time with many cousins.
