Time-Warp Wednesday

This week's photo Time-Warp was brought to mind recently due to my mom and sister's repeated trips to Durango.  My mom is eight weeks post-op for a lumbar fusion and she's doing great!  In fact it has be an absolute delight to see my mom come through this tough healing process and find her sense of humor and zest for life intact; and to see my sister reveal an astonishing ability to provide tender and thorough caregiving for days on end ... even in the face of ER visits, blood pressure fluctuations and a periodically impatient patient.

You ladies are incredible!

They are headed back to Durango this Friday for another round of x-rays to insure that her fused parts are still fused and to hopefully begin her physical therapy.  And a (gentle) pat on the back from the surgeon for a job well done! :)

Hence my Time-Warp to a previous trip to Durango ...

My sister lived in this mountain town for a spell and during one of our visits, we wandered around downtown and then stopped off for a meal at a little pizza joint.  I don't remember the name of the restaurant, but I remember the novelty of a concrete floor and my children sitting UNDER the table and scribbling with chalk.  And everyone was happy.

On the way back to the van, we strolled past a statue that caught the kids' eyes.  For obvious reasons.

I mean, who doesn't want to be a jolly, nimble and muscular as Puck?  

Nana - we are praying for your full recovery and hoping to see you dance a little jig soon, too! :)
