Goin' to the beach
My husband Niks and I are going to Ocean City Maryland tomorrow morning and will be gone for a week. We used to go to OC every year with the kids. I have such fond memories of it. We'd go to ZIPS where they had make-your-own sundaes, play miniature golf, go to the carnival end of the pier and ride rides, and search all week for the perfect tee-shirt. OH! And we'd have an old-timey photo taken every year. Some of those are so funny! One year we girls got Niks to dress up as a gangster moll, and we dressed as the gangster guys. Our son Nivek was not amused. That Nivek. Kinda a macho guy even as a kid.
In June 2005 when my sister Bonnie visited us, we took her for a couple of days to Ocean City. She had never been to the Atlantic Ocean before. She loved it. That Bonnie. She loved everything. She had been to the Pacific Ocean, and had in fact lived and worked on Catalina Island one summer when she was 18. But she had never seen a boardwalk before. I'm glad she came to visit, and I'm very glad that I took her so many places. She died suddenly February 12, 2006.
Niks and I will have an ocean front suite with a baloney and all kinds of special stuff, so if the weather isn't great, we don't have to care.
See you guys when I get back! Try not to be rowdy while I'm gone.
