Last weekend was the last weekend we’ll have both boys home for a while. Jamie left last Monday on a one way ticket to Hawaii to start a life adventure. How long he’ll be there is anyone’s guess! At the least, he’ll be there until his meager savings give out. His first foray for provisions was an eye-opening experience. I giggled at this text message, “…went to the market yesterday and was shocked at some of the prices. How can beer be three dollars more when it’s made here?” ;-)
(Ahhhh…. Welcome to the real world, Grasshopper! We’ve been to Hawaii a few times on family vacations, but when Mom and Dad pickup the tab, you don’t get the whole picture. )
The day before Jamie left, we took Missy Millie for a romp in the meadow.
Waving white tipped tail = Happy pup!
Happy boy, happy dog. I think the excitement of his coming adventure shows on Jamie’s face. Millie, of course, was just having a grand time. By the next morning she was not such a happy camper. With Jamie off to Hawaii and William back to college the house was verrrrrry quiet. We’ll adjust, but it’s going to take a little while.
Aloha nui loa, Jamie!

Aren’t we all just hopeless romantics deep down? Runs in the family :)
Great picture of him though, handsome man!!
I want to meet Millie!!
Poor Mom and Millie! You two have each other now, which has a sweetness all its own. Both Millie and Jamie look happy. What a beautiful picture, Dori. xo

LOL yes it’s a real eye opener for them when they are the ones paying…I hope he has a wonderful adventure. I don’t think I’ve adjusted to mine leaving yet and it’s been years :))
How very exciting! Wishing him the best in his adventure. And that doggy? Fabulous!
