Taiwan Shopping for Pink Saturday

While I was in Louisiana for a month, my husband was working in Taiwan. He took these pink pictures for us. Wasn’t that sweet?  


So “Hello Kitty”!


So 1960s!

Changing Gears

LV is my featured Pink Saturday participant. I always love visiting her blog and reading the stories. Last week, a comment she left on another blog, reminded me how much she has to tell us:

I am old country girl from way back. We never planted soy or had machinery. Just hard work with our hands and mules.

It’s good to remember this was not so long ago. I so hope I have stories of interest to pass on as I gain the life experience of LV!

Last Saturday I was flying from New Orleans to Burlington, VT with a flight change in New York. Something seemed odd since the flight status said “Closed”. We did get on our flight, but midway we were re-routed to Boston where we landed instead due to a “hydraulics” problem. Fire trucks on the runway, a tow to the terminal, my first real emergency in many years of flying.

All was fine and during the 5 1/2 hour wait in a confined Boston terminal for a new plane, an angel entertained me with her stories. I don’t know her name, but she looked like she could be LV’s sister!

Happy Pink Saturday! Be sure to pop over to Beverly’s at How Sweet the Sound and to say hi to LV because I was given two reminders to do so from Someone special! Funny how that works sometimes.

"Hello kittieey" One of my daughters fave.
I flew in hurricane Katrina, from Maine to Texas. It was the first and last time I was on a plane, those emergency trucks somehow left a indeliable mark on my experience.

LV said...

Nancy, what a great husband you have. Most men certainly would not be thinking of helping his wife with Pink Saturday. That's great. I do appreciate your kind words so much. It makes me feel so blessed to think I might have added a little spark to your day. That is about the only way I travel now, flying. So I truly understand your airport problems. Thanks again for your kindness.

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

Well....I am so glad you are safely back! I had quite a scare on an airplane many, many years ago and have not set on one since...see what a big baby I am and me with a son who is a helicopter pilot for Homeland Security!!!! Well, I would fly with him!
I love the pink kitties, but are those Hello Kitty? They have a little different look!
Not sure what our summer plans are yet...if at all possible to pop over to see you I will let you know!

Susie Jefferson said...

I'll definitely visit LV... how spooky...

How nice your husband took some pix for you - they're great. I just wish I had the nerve to shoot in shops... I'm too nervous in case I get thrown out or something.

I'm not doing PS this week... I over-reached (literally) and have wrenched my back, so am just not up to blog hopping right this minute (only had 5 doors to 2nd coat, as well). I must say I am pretty cross with myself - I should have been more careful.

I'm wishing you a very Happy Pink Saturday - firmly on Terra (or should it be Terror) Firma!

Dogmom Diva said...

Wow, I am impressed that your hubby took PINK pictures..we are getting these men well trained! How fun!

thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Happy PiNk, Nancy...

Is Mark still there? I want that PiNk doggie on the top shelf! :0)

What an adventure with your flight..I'm sure that was bit unsettling. I glad you had an angel entertain you. I'll bet you gained a lot of insight from those stories.

I wish my Dad's mother was still alive so I could listen to every word of her stories. I do miss that I never had the chance to get to know her.

Thanks for visiting with me...have a lovely week,
Stephanie ♥

I like LV, too. She's a neat lady.

And I'm so glad, Nancy, that your flight made it safely down and that you made it safely home. Oh what a relief! And what fun to make a new friend on that flight.

Loved seeing PS in the orient!
