Travels, Day 25, On The Way To Guatemala

Mom's travelogue continues:
Date: July 13, 1972 Thurs.
"[Dad + Brother] went to do some stuff up town. [Homer-Dog] and I walked to book store and grocery store.
Swam in pool in the afternoon. [Dad] got sunburned.
We went to Spanish class. Worked on verbs - don't think I'll ever learn."
Hmmm ... I wonder if this is when my book reading habit started? Actually, it started a few years later when I discovered Star Trek books. Fortunately, after many ... many ... many Star Trek books later, I've finally moved on to more substantial reading though my love of Science Fiction is still very strong.

Hmmm ... I'm also the grocery shopper. That's just because the Wife doesn't like to shop while I don't mind it much.

Mom, was there a reason Brother and I didn't join you for the Spanish classes? I think it might of helped once I started school. I suppose the classes were just for adults.


  1. Yes, it was for adults. We took lessons with some nuns from Canada who spoke French, a gal from South Dakota whose husand was a linguist and another nun from Wisconsin, I believe.

  2. OMG - I read Star Trek books when I was a kid too! Must be a geek thing. LOL

  3. Mom: Thanks. That's what I thought. I remember the Sisters.

    GH: Actually I stopped reading them only a few years ago so I read them into my 40s. Kind of pathetic I guess. Definitely a geek thing.
