More Memories - Hammocks


Sunday, March 31, 2013

I'm facing probably hip surgery this summer, and I'm thinking it may make sleeping in a hammock inadvisable. So I'm thankful for the memories I have associated with my hammock experiences. They began that same summer, in 2006, when we traveled by "lancha" to visit jungle villages.
I was set up in a hammock between Ps. Jorge and his wife Sabina.


Elvis made a little coccoon for himself to keep out not only light but also any bugs that strayed from port stops on the way.


While we waited for our return "lancha", we slung a hammock. Here, Cesar and Jhon play around on it.


They turned serious when they realized i was taking their picture.


This is a rare photo of Cesar actually SMILING without me having to tickle him. He is so cute!


Michael was quite sleepy and stretched out for a nap.


Once aboard, hammocks slung, I got a picture of my typical view.


Jhon had been the favorite meal of mosquitos, so he hadn't slept well at all during the mission. He was ready to catch up on sleep!


Mike didn't waste any time either.


Another coccoon!


An exhausted Elvis.


In the summer of 2007 - the summer I got to know Levi better - the "Soldados de Espera" were formed, and there were other hammock memories. But maybe I'll do those tomorrow!

  Love the pictures you shared. I'm always in my Yard Envy hammock, and I can't imagine time without it. Good luck on your hip surgery, and thank you for sharing your memories.

  Wow, that looks liek so much fun! It's a "dorm" of hammocks and we make memories from everything we do as I've been told, these are the good times in the making! What an opportunity to reflect back on such a time as a lot of us are unable to do the things we once were. Thanx for sharing! God luck and Godspeed on your up coming surgery as He will be with you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    oh my goodness- looking at Elvis in his cacoon- all tied in---would NOT be for this middle age woman---I'd never make it to the washroom in time at night lol. your pic of Cesar looks very much like my James- they could be twins.
We sponsor a child from Peru through World Vision- he came to our family when he was 19 months old- his fridge kid photo looks so similar to our 2 fosters at the same age- uncanny... suppose there are no international borders in God's house- we are all family
