Me at the Helm


My Uncle Don has everything and charm, too. As a kid we loved family vacations visiting him because he was so affectionate and had such exciting stuff! We did not have a lot of anything but siblings. Time with Uncle Don meant, delicious foods, resorts, plane rides, private islands and yachting. Here I am at the helm of one of his yachts. He always made me feel special. I think back and realize that I was able to experience some wonderful things that most people raised broke would never have because he was willing to share. If everyone did that- nobody would feel poor. I am grateful to him and anyone rich willing to enrich the lives of others. Tee hee. Good times.

I love reading about your childhood experiences.....for years (since I've known Kirsten) I've thought it would be cool to time travel and be able to spend a day with your family when you were all growing up. Now that I know your family has some colorful characters as well as just being full of goodness, I really wish it were possible! :)

Actually, we were millionaires in disguise. We didn't want you kids to know how much money we had or you might demand things and become spoiled rotten. So we paid relatives and friends to supply special things and events so we could enjoy them as a family without having the baggage of your knowing we had a lot of money. Pretty clever, eh? Love, mom and dad
