I woke up today from a bad dream so I thought that I would try to turn it into a positive thing. It is about my sister Karen. She is and always will be my special friend. Unlike me she was a bit shy and never did much for herself. I called her one day and talked her into going to the big city to stay at another sister's for the weekend. I was so excited when she said yes. We would half to take the bus which would take about two hours to get there. Well for some reason when ever I travel things always seem to happen. After waiting for at least a half an hour we were told that the bus had broken down but that they would taxi us to the next town to meet one there. By this time there were three other people waiting for the same bus. They were young students that I knew from my son's class. So we all had to get into this taxi together. Knowing how shy my sister was I let her sit in the front seat with the driver while I squeezed into the back with these three teenager's. As we got on our way my sister started a confersation with the driver. After realizing he was from where she lived she asked him what his last name was. He said "Right" to which she replies very quickly..."its sure a lot better than being "wrong". Off course we four in the back seat are trying not to laugh out loud because the driver didn't seem to notice her sence of humour. Well we finally reach the next town when the driver gets out of the car first. My sister looks back at us with this shocked look . She says " where the hell did he go, did he fall in a hole. To all our supprise this taxi driver that was sitting next to my sister and looking all of six feet tall was a midget. Needless to say this was just the beginning of an unforgetable weekend. I just had to share this little memory with you because my sister died about five years ago and I am having one of those , I miss you sis so so much, and the hurting never gets better just not as often....Lois.....xoxo
