    Default I'm Back!

    I'm back! You probably didn't know I was gone, but I haven't posted in a month because I've been roaming all over Europe with my Dad. He's a Holocaust survivor, and he was invited back to his hometown in Germany, and they made a big fuss over him. It was so sweet. I'll have to tell you all about it later, because I've been up for 48 hours straight traveling home and I'm exhausted.

    However, I did want to mention that I wanted to bring one set of jewelry with me on this special trip. Classy, but not flashy, so pearls! I wore my Mikimoto huggie earrings and my multicolored Tahitians that I bought at 2017 Ruckus from PP. I have a pearl tan line now, because I wore the same necklace every day and we walked everywhere.

    Next up. Buying my airplane ticket to Ruckus 2018.

    BWeaves; I hope you have made a good travel in Europe, and thank you to have shown us what are truly nice pearls looking like!

    Here's the pearl tan line. It's a little hard to see, but it's at the 18 inch length. I can see it around the sides of my neck and at the center front.

    We were on the front page of 4 newspapers, but here's the one with the pearls.

    In another newspaper, that's Dad in the blue shirt on the left. The full page article on Dad was on page 3. Trump and Kim Jong-un were on page 5.

    Paparazzi and a film crew followed us everywhere. We were interviewed and on the evening news.

    Here's the video that was shown on the local news program. It's about 4 minutes long. It was cold that day, so I wore a turtleneck and pearls. I also managed to photobomb every shot.

    You can see the entourage that followed us around for a couple of days. Mostly journalists.

    The garage used to be the synagogue in the 1930s.

    The cemetery is on a steep hill because you couldn't build on it, so it was cheap land.
