Sister and her friends, and me I guess too on a trip, trip, trip.
Zach was there too.
Somewhere where we normally aren’t usually.
Scrapbook crew at the ready. I forget the details.

I’m appointed photographer somehow. Where’s my camera?
If forgot my camera.
Can’t find my film or digital, but here’s a black Canon SD780.
Labeled with Aladdin - Nice. Here we go!

Raised the viewfinder that shouldn’t be there to me eye, eye, eye, eye!
And the exponentially grown crowd all raise two fingers - index and middle - to either side of the back of their head, and, “Happy New Year!”, they yell. I get a shot.

Giant motorized cleaning group is comin’ through immediately.
Is that a parade float?
What a lovely trip, same time, same place, next night.
Good morning, good morning, good morning, good morning, good day!

Friends and I crossed a river, it was snowy, we broke it.
Someone nearly ran across it. Swimming was ease, but I need a waterproof cellphone holder.
The owners of the house-store scoffed, then I found it in the van.
(That’s somehow here.)
