Tolerance

We have seventeen people living together in one medium-sized house this week. Tolerance is a necessity, and it's difficult, to say the least.

For instance, I drove in my mother's car from Atlanta to Hilton Head. Truckers ripped on by my luxury vehicle, honked their horns and gave me high fives. I thought, at first, that they thought I was cute. And then I realized that they were showing me approval for this:

  1. Heehee!! Too funny. But I bet they thought you were pretty cute, too. I'm readying the manor for a group of family scheduled to descend in 10 short days.

  2. My parents and I have many things we did not agree on. Thankfully, that was not one of them. Tolerance indeed!

  13. You made me laugh with this one. I'm pretty sure that the honking was induced by the perfect blend of cute AND republican :)

  14. I'm chuckling. You never know, do you? And your sweet mother loves you in spite of your differences. I have the same difference with mine...from time to time we have to agree to disagree--and not talk about it.

    Hope everyone has a good time at Hilton Head, and Sophie enjoys the Atlantic beaches.

  16. When things get rough, remember it could be worse ... you could be living under the same roof with 16 other people ALL the time!
