A Woman, A Plan, A Canal: Panama!
[Or to make that palindrome work as I have revised it: Panamowa!] I have a dream of going to Panama with my two sisters. All three of us were born there. My family lived there for nine years, but I am the baby, so I remember nothing. Isn't that disappointing? Yes! For me, very much so.
I really want to go see it with my sisters, and soak it in. My oldest sister, K, remembers it; she attended her first couple of years of school there before we moved back to the States. A couple of years ago she went there with our mom and said she felt "at home." There's a small town in Minnesota in which I will probably get the same feeling. I plan to go visit there after I retire. A couple of road trips are in the works for Little Old Me.
Anyway, I digress. This week I stumbled upon a quilter/blogger who lives in Panama! If we go to visit, she can direct us to some don't-miss sites, perhaps. Isn't that exciting?
The rest of my paychecks and any coins I find in cushions will be saved up for my future trip to Panama. I hope it really happens!
P.S. In case you weren't aware of the real palindrome, here it is:
a man, a plan, a canal: Panama
Look at it backwards, and it's the same (hence a palindrome).. a man a plan a canal panama
