    ohmyGOSH bandanna, [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70377-loveeyes.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70459-hugs.gif[/img] i don't even know what to say! what a sweet thing to do, now you made ME bawl too.

    And what a wonderful report. Not too mushy or sappy or over-the-top flowery, just real. i love your style. (and you remind me of me.)

    so glad you got go, and with your lil man too. but at the same time, i know that feeling - like when they sed you looked like a "family on vacation"... i know how that is, wishin it were so, wanting to fall into that vibe & fully enjoy it - and then - the SMACK in the head - realizing it's just a nice idea and not really true. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]

    i can't believe you took videos with the camera-!! you got it to work so much better than I EVER did. i could never figure out all the bells and whistles. (i'm spoiled by the easy-as-pie Cybershot i guess) It belongs in your capable hands for real. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70409-waytogo.gif[/img]

    and about this part......
    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">he cuts her short with attitude and says something about you are in America now...

    Thanks for the reminder [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/rolleyes.gif[/img] </div></div>

    *SIGH*
    This is kind of off on a tangent, but i recently went to Florida; Zed had tole me it feels like yard vibes down there even tho it's still America, and she was SO right. i loved it the instant i got off the plane and felt that blast of hot humid air. we were in the Lauderhill area which is somthin like 95% WI people, and we loved loved LOVED the place. my friend hasn't been home in over 15 years and even he about bawled, when we were hanging with our friends and saw how they had their houses all set up, with all the fruit trees and plants from JA and TnT, how they had their backyards all set up like a lil piece of home. He felt like he was "home" too, and dint wanna leave atall. it was like a thousand pounds lifted off our shoulders for those few days -

    then, on our way back, we had a stopover in the ATL. we were sittin in the airport just lookin around, and could just feel the horrible vibes the SECOND we were out of the "tropics", back to the hard, cold attitude. We both realized at the same moment, that we were back in 'america' and silently looked at each other with that same sadness in our eyes.

    there's nothing worse than that sinking feeling, knowing you're trapped, and haf to to 'go back'. it's even worse than the sadness leaving for Sangster, cause at least then, you're still IN jamaica. but, sittin there in the ATL airport, we both immediately felt the full realization of how different it was, even we were just one state away from FLA. it just sucked so much we couldn't even say a thing.

    OK well i no wanna put any sour vibes into this, so i'll say again it was a joy reading about your homecomin' trip and thank you for sharing with all of us! clap clap clap!!!

    Again I can't stop the tears...

    I cry for beloved, I cry for him, I cry for Imanni and I cry for me too...

    Back to reality, back to being a single mother, back to being alone...

    While we are waiting to board, Imanni sees a little girl eating an ice cream cone.
    Of course he wants one, and I tell him if he is good on the plane we will get one when we get to Uncle Trucks house.
    He does not want to wait that long, but I give him the look [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70456-eyebrows.gif[/img] and he shuts up about the ice cream [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif[/img]

    Re: As Deep as the Ocean...

    I walk down to 7eleven for some necessities, and then re-arrange my luggage so the liquor I got at Sangsters can go in my checked luggage for the flight back to Sacramento in the morning...

    We manage to get some sleep, and the hotel phone is ringing...

    7:30am time to wake up [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70394-sleeping.gif[/img]


    Everything together, we head downstairs. Load the luggage on the shuttle, and check out.
    We say our good bye's and I am surprisingly ok... [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70459-hugs.gif[/img] It is going to be a looooong time before I see my likkle Swedish friend again... [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]

    The shuttle driver comes out, and Imanni and I get on and take our seats. Swedish is sitting on the curb by her luggage waiting for her cab. We wave through the window, and I see the sadness in her eyes...

    Okay, here comes the tears [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cry.gif[/img]

    Imanni says "I love Auntie Swedish" [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crybaby.gif[/img] "me too baby, me too" [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crybaby.gif[/img]

    By this time Swedish is [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

    She walks down the curb to the "shuttle for hire" lady and pays for a shuttle [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70379-moneyeyes.gif[/img]

    She comes back to get Imanni and I and we all head down to that shuttle bench...

    and we wait, and we wait, and we wait [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cry.gif[/img]


    Finally after another 30 minutes the shuttle comes... [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/helpsmilie.gif[/img]


    We get on, and all this time I've been saying this hotel is on ElSegundo (sp?) [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/ideathink.gif[/img] The shuttle driver asks for the address, but I don't have it [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] I give him the number and he calls from his cell... Thank God, cause the hotel is not on ElSegundo [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] He says where the hotel is will be a higher fare than where we thought it was... [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70379-moneyeyes.gif[/img]

    I hear Swedish say "I don't care, I would give $100 dollars, just get us there" [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

    We reach the hotel at 11:30pm, 3 hours after we landed at LAX only 2 miles away [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/rolleyes.gif[/img]
