Salt and Pepper

I'm off to Portland to visit this ridiculously talented and amazing young thing I get to call cousin. Actually, I call her Cecily. Well, actually, I call her "Pepper", because I'm "Salt." She's the brunette and I'm the blonde.

She's always been my partner in both crime and creativity. Countless hours have been invested with her in perfecting the arts of swinging, writing advertisement jingles, girl scouting, doll and jewelry making, entrepreneurial endeavors, traveling, hiking, bell ringing, and play writing. But that's just skimming the surface.

Now I'm off to her place, along with the husbie's cousin, who is also an angel sent from heaven (whose childhood experience with her cousin was not quite as girl-scouty as ours were). PDX, here we come!

Grandma's where we get our talent. This painting was of us and my brother in about 1984.
