Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Forgotten.
Heads up – Mom has a mystery that she needs help solving!
From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:
One of the most ginormous and joyful tasks of getting the apartment back in order after the flood is reorganizing my books. During all of that I found this: a signature book that my mom, dad and sister gave me for our family vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. On the inside cover is “Brianne Bilyeu, Walt Disney World 1994”. The first page is filled with signatures from Mom, Dad and Erin with well wishes for a happy trip. Further in are all of the signatures that I collected from famous Disney characters: Mary Poppins, Crazy Dale, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, Brer Rabbit, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:
Forget going to work today. Apparently. Freezing rain means lazy government workers get to telecommute today.
From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:
A forgotten treasure. I have never found any one who could tell me what it is. Not even the nearly forgotten friend who gave it to me.
