The cast of Characters

When I first met and fell in love with Tom, I realized we had some strong differences. One of the big ones is that Tom has a built in alarm and when it goes off he’s off and running. I can barely get “Good Morning” out of my mouth before he’s out the door. He’s a very active person and I, well I like to putz. I’d stay in my PJ’s all day if I could. One of his loves is skiing, and he’s very good at it. Well, you couldn’t get me in a pair of ski’s if you tried. That created a situation for vacations. At first we’d go to the mountains and he’d go off skiing and I’d do a little shopping and knit while he was gone. It got very lonely for both of us. Then someone suggested we join a ski club. Boy, I’d love to give that person a big hug. It turned out to be the best thing for both of us. Now he has people to ski with and I have people to shop and explore with. I was a little concerned at first because I’m a very shy person and I didn’t know these people. But over the years I have found some wonderful friends, “Hi Barb”.  Now at first I thought these people might be a little strange, well, they were. But in a good way. Here our just some of a few people who were on our trip that helped make it so enjoyable.


This is Chris, Dawn, and Sandy. These girls don’t ski either so we did a lot of sight seeing.



This is Bonnie and Rick. They met at the ski club and decided to get married on one of the trips. Very Romantic, no?


Speaking of romantic, this is also a Rick and Bonnie. They got engaged on this trip.


This is Dale and his mother Harriet. I absolutely fell in love with her this trip. Not in a gay way. She is just the sweetest thing. Always upbeat and positive. She’s having knee replacement surgery this week so please think good thoughts for her.


Here’s the whole group of us. There was 41 of us all together.


And finally, here’s Dave. Who could not love a mug like that. He had me in stitches the whole time. It’s a good thing I had my bladder fixed or I would have had wet pants the whole time.


Tomorrow I will post pictures of our trip. I just wanted to let you get to know these wonderful people first. After you get to know them you’ll love them too. Even Dave.

Hi Pat! Glad you are posting again. I miss being on ski trips with you. Maybe next season. I didn't know about Rick & Bonnie's engagement. That's great! Glad you had a good time on the trip!
