Aunt Nina

This Veterans Day weekend, I had the pleasure to visit our favorite army veteran, Aunt Nina. She had lots of pictures to share from her autumn cruise to Alaska. She’s planning a road trip to Florida in a week.
While sipping free-trade coffee, the spry octogenarian reflected on life in North Carolina during the 30’s. Her house didn’t have a well, so she and her sisters had to “carry water”. It wasn’t until a well was dug that they didn’t have to carry water, or carry it that far. In the winters, the well pump had to be primed with warm water before it could be used.
Andale, I have to go get my tea out of the microwave…

Siempre agradecido,

Pepino “Cargando Agua” Suave
