How many family pictures does your family take a year? We probably get one, maybe two if I don't feel too ugly or fat to get them taken. Anyway, here is our yearly family photo. Grandma Dryg = Funny. On our trip to Bostanci, which is along the Sea of Marmara about 15 minutes away from our house by bus, we got Grandma Dryg to do excersizes on the Turkish excersize stops that are dotted along the coast . She almost got herself killed by stopping in the middle of the street. She actually started to cross the one way street but when she saw the cars coming down the street towards her she got that deer in the headlight look and sort of gave up. The horns began to blare and she kind of just stood there but Jonathan and I were screaming at her for her to keep going. She slowly moved her legs one by one,swearing under her breath as she walked, to our side of the street to safety. Now Jonathan and I laugh and laugh over it. I guess it's not so funny to think that my mother almost got killed by several taxis on a busy street in Istanbul. Do you think I am evil for chuckling every now and then?
We are having a good time together, and for any of the family that is interested, the answer is "No, we are not starving her."
