So, a long long long time ago when my daughter was a baby so that would be like 17 years ago. God. Let me just sit with that for a minute. Ok, deep breathing, moving on....we took a little holiday to Martha's Vineyard. We were staying a few blocks from this little community of really cute houses. Cute, right? So one day I went over there and painted a picture of a few of these houses. It was a pretty good painting. Braggy. Then it was time to go home. Oh no! We were running late and thought we might miss the ferry. So we were rushing. I put the painting on the roof of the car and ran back inside to grab something else (at this point you know where this story is going) and so when we got in the car finally and drove off at high speed the painting flew off the roof and no one noticed and it was gone and lost forever.
That's my Oak Bluffs story.
