Good Memories By The Millions

Green Witch Tarot ~ 6 of Cups

     Mrs. Hathaway, our school bus driver paid a quarter to the first student to bring her an easter trillium each year. I won once!
     Long after mother closed her chicken business Becky and I explored the attic above the hen house. It was full of eggs. We started throwing them and ooOooo the stink! Oh the fun!
     Tea parties with toast with Grandma Pearl. She had a drop side toaster and used Blue Bell Margarine. We'd drink tea, eat toast, and watch her soap operas. "Just like real life" she'd say...
     The  'map case' where all the National Geographic maps were stored also held two newspapers, probably kept for the headlines, but as kids we'd get them out, lay them out on the floor, lay on the floor on our belly's, and read all four pages of comics. Rich livin'!
     Good memories...we've all got a million of them if we take the time to remember.

  3. Yeah but you need someone connected to share them with. I made four quilts about 60x60 and then turn to making masks for the VNA. Some of the ladies answered my call for elastic when I used my little bit up. I gave all mine to a charity a couple years ago. See I really shouldn't give all away. Going out as little as possible, food and tomorrow cat litter. I guess that is sort of like toilet paper huh?

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
