"Look at that!!!"  That's what you can hear at my sister Jeanne's house when rafters float down the river and see the clothesline!

This is so funny!  As you can see the perspective in the photo, the underwear look almost as big as the little camper.  THEY ARE !!!  They are at least 4x4..that's 4x4 feet wide!  One night we were eating dinner on the back porch, and these 2 rafters came down the river and one kept saying to the other one:  "get the camera, get the camera, look at that, get the camera!"  She never could get the camera in time to take a picture.  She did almost capsize her raft trying though.

It's easy to tell people where Jeanne's house is though...you just say, "her house is on the river, you know the one with the giant panties!" 

She flies those panties like the queen.  You always know she's there if the panties are blowing in the wind.

Meet Patrick.  He's a huge stuffed animal that a family gave me with an equally huge box of candy one Valentine's Day.  He took up an entire chair in my office for a few weeks, then I decided that he was going to go  home with a different child each week, and have fun adventures with them.

He's been out to countless restaurants, the dentist, museums, on vacations all over the place, he's a great cuddler, but one thing that the kids know...Patrick doesn't like water.  They take good care of him.

These days, he's looking a little loved on, and not quite as big as he used to be.  That's just fine!  He's becoming the Velveteen Patrick!

So it was time for me to go on vacation a few weeks ago.  I packed Patrick along with all our luggage and gave him the trip of his lifetime!  He went to college, to the Air Force Academy and even fell off the side of a mountain on a hiking trip.  (Thank you Sam-my brother-for rescuing Patrick!)
