More Proof That I Am Indeed, A Flower Child
My mother and stepfather visited this morning. It's the first time we've seen them since Christmas, firstly because they live at the complete other end of town from us, and we all have lives; but also because they were on a cruise for last seven days. They went to St. Thomas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico.
Mom didn't have any pictures to share, but she did bring me back a rather unique souvenir. She said that there was a 50s and 60s revival show on board, and one of the performers was a person near and dear to my heart: Davy Jones, of the Monkees. Mom approached him, and apologized for interrupting his leisure time, but asked if she could get an autograph for her daughter who adores the Monkees. He agreed, and I am now the proud possessor of a personalized autograph from Davy (ahem -- excuse me, *David*) Jones.
