We are back from our weekend trip to attend a house party in the hills of Los Angeles. We gave two gifts to our hostess Patt.
This is a set of 15 cards featuring different photos my husband has taken of scenes in Arizona. I printed a description of each on the back and left the inside blank for her to use as greeting cards.
Part of the purpose of this weekend was a mini-reunion of some of my husband’s classmates from Balboa High School (class of 1966) in the Panama Canal Zone where their military or civilian service parents were posted. I scanned their alumni patch, printed it on fabric, and sewed it to a linen dish towel. Their school colors are red and white.
Occasions like this weekend help ground us as not many of us have a place we really can call home or have friends we’ve known before our senior year of high school. Reunions such as this provide us an anchor in our otherwise nomadic pasts.
