That’s it. Have left the mountain and am currently on holiday in … Minnesota!
A family reunion, actually, so it’s your vote as to whether that is actually a holiday or not! Whatever, it’s good to see my brothers and sisters, and their wives and families. It’s been 2 years, which seems a longer time each time I say goodbye to them.
We had a ‘sisters lunch’ today, perhaps appropriately at Hells Kitchen in Minneapolis. It was very nice – the 3 of us could just quietly chat on our own, no interruptions. We talked a lot of our mother, which is natural – she was and is a huge influence on all of us.
And so on it will go, in the usual Larson way. As my sister Nancy said, we Larsons find the best activities to be talking and eating, and I’m sure we will do plenty of each! I think that frustrates some of the more active of the spouses, who would like to be out and about doing things, but we Larsons aren’t a ‘doing things’ kind of family!
And so on it will go. Quietly, affectionately, without argument or fuss. The Larson way.
