Introducing....


I do have a first born, actually an only child.

She is a grown woman now and it has been about 8 years since we have really visited each other. There has been a lot of rough water under the bridge.

Even so, you never stop loving them.

You can imagine my excitement.




She practically runs this place. It's a pretty cool job right on the water.

She looks like ET in the closet full of toys. There is a ton of stuff in this place. All vera vera expensive, but Miss Smiley is a fabolous sales lady. She can pile your arms high with doo dads and trinkets that you didn't know you wanted, and you leave smiling and broke.

I was very grateful she didn't use the force of that charm on me.

This customer did not escape. Buy! you buy now!!

One of her more favorite tasks is to feed the pelicans. My baby is brave she can man handle dead fish with her bare hands---oh wait maybe not, those are gloves!

It's a perfume thing I think.
and here they come. They actually know her, she calls them and they come flying in for a free feast.

Come on, you know you want it. She says the little suckers can really scratch you up when they are hungry. They aren't all that excited today. Here birdie....nice fish!




Check that out!  The fish is in her hand and the birds mouth. What a shot!! Whoo hoo!  Yeah I know it was pure luck.

All done.  The fish are full and I am standing there soaking in the sight of my beautiful girl.
Bliss.

How lovely that you got to see your daughter after so many years.
Did you also get to see your other granddaughter while you were there?

It's great that you got to see your daughter and it looks like it was a good visit. How cool that part of her job is feeding the pelicans.

She IS beautiful!
I am glad you are getting things worked out. I know what it is to miss a child. You devote your life to them and then they move away.
Feeding the pelicans....what fun!!! I love them.

Wow--so this is the daughter you talk about so much. She is lovely (just like her momma) Hopefully the water under the bridge can be diluted with healing water this time, hmmm?

Exactly the type of shop that I should not be allowed in! I know exactly what you mean about never stopping loving them, it's been years since I've seen my eldest too. Good for you!
