Sean’s “Transformer“ Car!

DSCF1229 It was so nice to have Sean home for a longer stay!  He went to his new position in China Lake,last Wednesday.  We all had a blast while he was here:  the trampoline,DSCF1208 pool, movies, bowling, music, computer stuff, scrabble, poker, and just plain talking.  He took his “little” brother to Calistoga to see a vibes player one evening and took us all to the Castle winery for Mothers Day. 

DSCF1266 His new VW car is his latest “toy.”  It is more roomy than it looks---lots of room in the trunk,etc.  When he puts the top down it looks like one of those transformer toys!  DSCF1268   DSCF1269 DSCF1270 DSCF1271 DSCF1272 It automatically moves the sides out and the top folds neatly in part of the trunk area. 

Wednesday morning, after packing everything, he stacked it all in the living room.  “Bet you I can get all of this in my car!” he claimed.  And he DID!  In spite of the room that is needed for putting the top down, he managed to pack it full---using the back seats and the passenger spot too---and still fit nicely in his seat with room to spare!  It was truly amazing how he did that! 

We sure miss him---things are way too calm and quiet since he left…DSCF1265

Shore duty! It seemed the sailors who worked for me were of two mind sets; those who couldn't wait to get back to sea and those who would give anything for a duty station that didn't get underway.
