~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I was twelve years old when I saw snow for the very first time. If I saw snow before that, I do not remember. I was in the seventh grade. The church group had a weekend trip to a cabin. I don't remember where the cabin actually was. I do remember seeing photos my friend had, but unfortunately I do not have any myself.
Living in central California, we do not typically get snow, at least at sea level, where I live. Up in the surrounding mountains you will see snow on occasion and once every several decades we may have a surprise bit of snow around the yard.

The next person I would invite to dinner would be my cousin, Jan Lundberg, in Sweden. I am so fortunate that he replied to one of my blog posts, which…

This week’s prompt ~ Prompt 13 ~ Who's Coming to Dinner?
If you had to hold a dinner party and could invite a maximum of 12 special people, who would you invite?
You can not include family in this-the special people could be famous or historical people.

These are the people I would invite to my dinner party! We are gathering to have fun and learn more about one another. We will have a large round table set elegantly, but fun too, where we can all visit together.

I would invite Neil Armstrong. I remember as a child when he went to the moon. My dad and I made a BIG scroll paper (maybe for a school project?) with newspaper articles and photos, etc. of the whole event. I would ask many questions about the preparation and trip he made. I would love to hear abou…
