Dawn’s Dutch Fold Card

If you have cable you might be able to watch a really incredible series called THE NATIONAL PARKS :AMERICA’S BEST IDEA…by KEN BURNS perhaps like myself you might have grown up with at least one parent who had the urge to wander… My folks did not have money but every summer from the time I was about 5 my Dad tossed us into the car and pointed it west… I saw and hiked Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, and Devil’s Tower…when I realized that was where they were going in CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND….I was immediately transported back to my childhood… as I said we didn’t have money and we mostly ate one meal out maybe every other day but in between time we ate baloney sandwiches out of a cooler in our back yard…or sometimes peanut butter but we did travel… often sleeping in the car ….we wisely had a station wagon …me mom and dad squished into the back and my little brother slept on the front seat… unless Mom took it away ( she was short) and forced him to be in the back with me and Dad..

As I grew older we eventually had more funds and got a small travel trailer..( this was my favorite) and again as time went by Dad got a trailer that sat in the back of the pickup truck he now owned.. and finally my folks well my DAD was probably the prime reason they got an RV…my dad was happiest on the road…Fond memories and this series about the Parks is just magical if you have any love of the national parks … hunt for it its worth the effort… Ok now back to cards…
