Two of the 5 R’s, Robin and Randy

Fun fact about my family,

We were once “the Five R’s.”

Do you remember

“The Five Little Peppers?”

A famous book series,

written in years,

1881 ~ 1916,

by author 

Margaret Sidney.

Check out the films

made in years,

1939 ~ 1940.

It started out as 

Robert and Rosalie.

Married in 1955,

adding a daughter named

after her father, Robert:

Robin Elizabeth Oldrieve.

(Hence, reocochran is

Then, along came a baby

brother Randy.

A teacher and NASA engineer

thought a third baby was in order.

So, along came a third baby R:

Like reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic!

Robin ~ Randy ~ Ricky

or

Robin, Randall and Richard.

We had fun at the

“Soft Opening”

while Rich and wife Susan

flew across the ocean to

take college students

around the sights of

France.

Randy and I

are looking into

the western skies,

squinting from setting sun.

Puzzles, part 2

Image

Marley and Makyah,

my M & M grandies,

love wearing summer clothes,

despite outside freezing temperatures!

We chose one of ten puzzles left in

collection of brightly colored choices.

This one was seashells!

My first puzzle was built

of 150 pieces in only two hours

with current guy friend who bought

the multiple puzzles box for me

to share with grandchildren.

It was a bunch of kayaks! 

The second one was constructed

with my grandson, Micah of

an Italian narrow canal.

My friends who suggested

here from blogging community

the activity is like taking an

“escape vacation.” 

Their shared memories of doing 

this pastime with family in

childhood looked like fun.

I may have inspired some to

purchase a puzzle or engage

in another long forgotten activity.

Hope you are having a lovely season,

no matter which one ~  

please share how you like

to pass the time away!
