Cross-Country Connections: Souvenir

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 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 Souvenir.

From Mom in Hagerstown, Maryland:

One candle is a bouquet of flowers. The other is a seagull on a pier post.These two candles came from the oldest candle shop in Paris back in 2008.

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

Yellow mug with a Minion from Despicable Me on the side.I picked up this guy when I visited the Universal Studios City Walk in Los Angeles, California this spring. I like to hold him up at my boss when she stops in the office to give me more work.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

    A good luck three-legged pig I picked up in New Orleans before my first real job interview.

    I’ve never heard of a good luck three legged pig before.

    Your mention of a job interview reminded me of the time when I first entered the job market (as an unskilled worker) during a period of full employment in the1960s. The job adverts read: “Apply ready to start…” The foreman, or office manager would take you to your work station and show you what to do – and sometime in the afternoon they’d come back and ask you what your name was. Good old days.
