Wherein We Break Free From Long Title Posts

.
I'm back home where I can return to my regularly scheduled blogging program.

That means, no more long title, pictureless, posts.

At least until the spirit moves and I decide to do another one. I'm thinking of starting a linky party of nothing but long title posts - - - would YOU play??


Keetha and Pam

Only this isn't SISTER PAM.

This is Pam-who-was-10-when-I-was-5-Pam.

Pam worked in the serving line in the dining hall at camp. On the very first lunch she heard someone say my name. She turned to Julie, who was serving beside her and who I've known for a long time, and said, "Keetha? I've only ever known ONE Keetha and she was our pastor's daughter when I was a little girl."

Julie, knowing I had grown up in Wisconsin and that my dad was a pastor said, "You better ask her, that may well be she!"

And so - - - THIS Pam and Keetha were reunited after 52 years!!!!

How fun is THAT?


"First and Second Mark"
Or so they dubbed themselves.

First Mark is a pastor from Superior, Wisconsin, who runs the snack shop at camp.

Second Mark is really Marcus, but they put the wrong name on his name tag. He came to camp with me to be a counselor.


Not sure why they are looking skyward - - - trying to look holy I guess.


This building housed the snack shop on the left end of the picture with my cabin being the next door to the right.

Invariably, when I was returning to the cabin - - - especially in the middle of the night after a PR (potty run) - - - I would try to enter the locked snack shop door.

So - - - First Mark put a sign on the door just for me.

Here, let me give you a closer look:


So helpful, that First Mark.

More camp news and views tomorrow for Sunday in My City.

Love the catch up with Pam! So did you make crafts, go canoeing, play archery...?

Pam said...

It appears that you had more than locked doors impeding your return to your nice cozy bed after your middle of the night PR. Aren't those puddles surrounding the stoop to the cabin door which means that you had to dash in the rain and the mud too? It's always amazing how quickly the misery of a camp experience fades but the good memories last forever!

Lady Jane said...

You are a brave one Miss Keetha... A whole week at camp... Wow... You go girl. Just goes to show what a small world it truly is catching up with a friend of so long ago. Isnt that the cats meow....

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Keetha the middle of the night potty runs are hard on us 'older' ladies! Glad you had a fun time. Your titles only blog party would be a hoot! hugs, Linda

Ann in the UP said...

Hmm...could I write long titles? Without writing any post? I'm all over that one.

I'd say in your rainy, cold week---the night time potty runs were just the "frosting" on the cake!

I have the RECORD for 'holding it' during camping trips! No fool am I. But poor hubby always has to get up and get dressed and go out in the dark of night. While I slumber. Saying "don't pee, don't pee, don't pee".

That sign is hilarious!!

That is so awesome about Pam. Love the two Marks. You need to go back and read It's A July Thing (The sweetest wedding ever) about the father, son and holy ghost!! Love the sign on the door. I bet you had a lot of laughs.
