Three Thing Thursday
Here's a shot from the observation deck near New Point Light. There are three pieces of wood edging their way above that green marsh grass, and there are probably three hundred million fiddler crabs milling around in the marsh area closer to shore.
Welcome to Three Thing Thursday, where anyone can write any three (or more) things they want. It seems like every other day is either Three Thing Thursday or New Year's Eve, the time is flying by so quickly.
1. Next weekend is July 4th. What happened to the month of June? Come to think of it, May is missing too. To whom do I report the fact that two entire months did not linger long enough to register? Would that be the sheriff? NASA? Mother Nature?
2. Speaking of July 4th, I really miss anchoring in front of the Islander at dusk to watch the fireworks from the water. Those were the days, the very best way to spend July 4th. Later this week I will write about what used to happen on those wonderful evenings. (Unless I forget, which I will, so would someone remind me before next weekend? Thanks.)
3. Chesapeake Bay Middle Sister gets married in the Aloha State on Tuesday, July 7th. She is flying up from her home in Georgia to see us this weekend, for one last visit as a single woman. Baby Sister is coming home on Saturday. All three Chesapeake Bay Sisters will be on their childhood turf. Why does this frighten me?
Now it's your turn to tell me 3 things. Anything you want. If you are struggling to come up with something, then tell me about a July 4th, a family member's wedding, or how time is passing by so quickly that it's inadvisable to blink unless you care to miss something, such as the entire year of 2009.
