wander project Caption Thursday (and more about mom!)

Hey, Hey, My My its Caption Thursday time again!

(it’s better to comment than to groan).

With so many apologies to Neil Young and ruining his awesome lyrics!  I cut down the number of pictures on Caption Thursday to make the process a little easier for everyone. Today I have two really fun photos and put comments and Captions away. You can create a new (and I am sure better) caption either in the picture area or in the general comment area!

Yesterday I talked about my mom’s cooking. She is the most amazing cook. I learned to cook with and from her. It was fun growing up because the other person I learned to cook with, and from was my mother’s mother. My grandmother was a recipe follower (to at)! My mom doesn’t do recipes. I have to say I am a lot like her. I will follow a recipe for something I have never made, but if I know what it tastes like, I won’t even then if I see the dish though I never use a recipe. That is my mother’s influence. But there are many other stories about my mom and her impact on me. The first story today involves something that was a part of who I was then.

I used to climb on everything. Everything I encountered, I climbed. When we were in Thailand, I went off trail all the time to climb rocks. We were on a trail somewhere outside of Bangkok. I saw a rock by the trail and started to climb. I waited for my mother to say, “get off that rock,” but she never did. Finally, on top of the rock, I looked down and asked my mom a question.

“mom, why didn’t you yell at me to get off the rock/.”

“Would that have stopped you?” my mother asked.

“no,” I answered.

She looked at me and then said, “if you are going to do that, I am not going to argue with you anymore.”

Somehow that was worse than her yelling gets off at me!

The other thing is my mom has a great sense of humor. But she is also one that hoards jokes and then when you aren’t ready she drops one on you.

I don’t use recipes often to this day!
