Once several of our family members met in Barlow Ky. I remember a time Evan, Renee, Motho, Steve and I were driving around town being silly and calling out the car window, ‘howeeruu’ to the local townsfolk.
On another trip we were staying near Mt St Helens. One night, around midnight, Evan, Steve and I went out on an out-of-the-way road to watch a meteor shower. Evan was in the car, Steve was on the roof of the car and I was standing with my hands behind my neck for support in a ‘surrender’ position). Two police cars pulled up and shined their lights on us. I looked at Steve then at Evan in the car. They were both holding their hands up in a surrender position. It looked pretty funny. The police got out. We told them we were watching the meteor shower. There was no problem – they just thought someone me) might be in trouble.
Some memories of trips to Boston.
1984, on a month long bus trip, I stopped off in Boston to see Evan and Renée. We went to Vermont for their wedding. It was a wonderful time.
Valinda, Becca and I went to Boston in January of 1993. Steve and Motho came the next day. Evan and Renée rented a house in Vermont. I remember walking on an ice pond and other winter activities.
In May of 2008, on a trip to Martha’s Vineyard, I visited Evan and Renee. It was a short but memorable trip. Highlights included going with Evan and Renée to Walden Pond, the Old North Bridge, seeing a bad play at the American Repertory Theater we walked out at intermission) and the Mt Auburn cemetery designed by Olmstead – incredibly beautiful.
