My sister just got back from a wonderful trip back to our home town of Battle Creek, Michigan. Yes, we're Kellogg's Kids! I think our entire family worked at the Kellogg's plant at one time or another. Janice's high school friend, Debbie, lives in Alaska. They met up in Salt Lake City and flew on to Michigan. Janice visited all the houses we grew up in, the schools we went to and even some of the restaurants we ate at. She had a wonderful time and after she had left I wondered why I hadn't gone along. She's going back next year again so this time I'll try to go with her. They got back here to California on Tuesday and they came by today to take me to lunch.

Miss Jean, Debbie, Janice

They are coming over tomorrow to pick me up and we are off on an adventure. I won't tell you what it is 'till I get back and I know I have survived! Of the three sisters (I'm the youngest) I am the least adventurous to say the least. Janice wanted to take Debbie somewhere extra fun and suggested sky diving. She had done it before and loves it. I don't like flying so why would I get in a plane that I don't like getting into just to jump out of it. Noooooo sireeeee bob! So we are doing plan "B".

"Mommy, you are doing WHAT?!" You have got to be kidding!!!!!"

"I'll be just fine, Maggie. At least I hope I will be. If not, just divide the quilting supplies and my antiques between Becky and Nikki! and take care of Daddy for me."

Bungee Jumping??? Just a guess.

I grew up in Michigan. Did I ever tell you that? I grew up in Hell, Michigan. About 1/2 hour from Ann Arbor.

I have two sisters also. I'm the middle. I can't imagine what it would be like to not have sisters. We're blessed that way, aren't we?
