I turned on my cell phone this afternoon and found a message from my mom – on the bus, on her way to Branson.
“We stopped at a Taco Bell,” she said, proclaiming the highlight of the day so far. She had never been to one before! Then, she and my dad giggled.
Yes, that’s sweet.
Helaine just called to tell me my mom had called her this afternoon. They are at their hotel in Branson.
It seems, because my mom is the ‘leader’ of this group, she and my dad have been assigned a suite! My guess is, that’s something my parents will keep quiet about… at least while they’re there.
In many ways, the social scene for retirees is like the social scene for high school girls.
