: : Kate and MMMMarcia,
: : Thanks for looking out for us. You have no idea how much we discussed/fought over who was going to get the two lower bunks. I don't have to tell you who won. Now you know who tells who what to do! (Sorry Jo and Karen but that's life!)
: : Your Loving Sister
: : : MMMM
: Hey...."loving" sister Mary....
: I may have "gotten/won" the top bunk; but who was more in shape to slither up it??? Ha, ha!
: And who got all of the sisters to get to the sunrise....and the sunset all in one day (ah! North Carolina and flying dogs!!!)...with not so much as a "by your leave"???; even though that was not in the program?? (An added attraction?? Sarah Z. ...where are you when I need you???)
: Your very "humble" "quiet" sister, Jo
: (Ha, Ha!)
: You should have stood your ground: at least Marcia could have erected a Hadrian's wall to keep you out; no less than this for the likes of some people!!!! (Mr. Wallace; here we come!!!)
: AND...what will we do for next year...can we "burn" the bunks in the bonfire???? (I think DAR would approve of that!)
I think us that drew the short straws and had to sleep 'way up there in the lap of the Gods' (the top bunk!!) ought to have the privilege of setting those bunks alight!! What say?!! At one point I thought I was going to need an oxygen mask, the atmosphere was so thin up there!! And the way they did wobble! I did think that they could have at least provided seat belts!! Mind you, it was perfect for practising that 'Uncas slide' into the ravine!! Well, it SEEMED as far down, when viewing from the top!!
However, you don't argue with the boss! 'No, you CAN'T have that bunk! Those bunks are assigned! Can't you read? Sweetser suite! Well, in all innocence, I had to ask - 'what's a sweetser? And why does a Sweetser get preference! I was here first!!!!' Well, I know Marcia can say 'no' in many languages - and all are understandable!! 'No' definitely means 'non'!! And guess where *I* slept!! Yep, NOT on the bottom bunk of my choice, I can tell you!! Hey! You gotta know when you're licked, in this life! And I learned that the first 10 minutes I arrived at the Gathering!!
Ah well, It can't have been that bad! I'm going back next year for more!!
