Photo-a-Day - July 2012 - Day 4: Fun
Jody, a 23-year veteran of the Navy--3 years active, 19 reserves--was in Iraq during Desert Storm.
We always have fun together, even when it's bringing the Jeep I bought from my parents up from Arizona. We're very different--she is science-based, intellectual and does everything from DIY to fine lace knitting; I'm slightly fey and intelligent (which is different from intellectual) and do crochet and needlepoint. She forgives me for not letting her put the dead coyote in the back of the car so she could boil it down and study the skeleton;I made her try snails (escargot) at a restaurant in Independence, CA, which she thought were "okay".
Jody is now divorced as well. Our goal is to be two old crones, living in a duplex in Washington State where she can keep a garden and a pony; and I can watch her garden and ride in the pony cart. She's my pal.
