The tragically unhip Turners
Now with bandannas!
No, we haven't joined the Crips or the Bloods. Even though my uncle, who recently retired from teaching at an inner-city high school in Memphis, asked if I was given any problems when I bought these.
Um, no. I don't guess the folks at Dollar General in Senatobia were too suspicious of me and a little red headed girl.
(Unlike the people at the Atlanta airport, who thought a nine-month-old Anna Marie and I were terrorists because we'd bought a one-way ticket. And made me miss my flight. So that we had a two-hour layover waiting for the next flight. And I didn't have a stroller because I thought we wouldn't be there long. But I digress.)
It was all in the spirit of Memorial Day, and I might add, Jason only wore his for the purposes of this picture.
Did I mention Anna Marie LOVES bandannas? They're so multi-functional. Not only do they enable her to be a rock star (like the Naked Brothers Band on Nick) they also double as capes.
And! And! Anna Marie had her first non-immediate-family sleepover last night! She was playing with my cousin's daughter, Savannah, and Savannah didn't want her to go home, and neither did my aunt (Savannah's Gandy). So, she stayed.
(She insisted on having the can of Sprite in the picture.)
No, I didn't call to check on them, because I figure that if she wasn't thinking about us, and I called, and she "remembered" us, it might upset her.
I guess everything went OK, because they didn't call me to come get her in the middle of the night.
Jason had to go to the auction today, even though the sale was moved to tomorrow, because he needed to get his food order. I sent him with some clean clothes, and he's going to pick her up in a few minutes.
I guess if she needed to have her first "sleepover," my aunt's house was as good a place as any.
