Alberta

 Shaman's Oracle ~ Dancer of Friendship

Alberta Altizer Brown, my first friend who used her last name as a middle name...I've been doing it ever since. Our landlady when we moved to Portland, two bumpkins from the sticks. I was too shy to even call and get the power and phone turned on. 

We were just hello on rent day acquaintances until one night about 11 PM she called and said she was out of Dr. Pepper, did I want to ride down to the store with her. Why not? She took me to Frankie's, an odd place way the heck and gone from where we lived (adjoining lots) which was an adventure in itself, in the middle of the night no less!

She worked as a wide load escort for mobile homes and heavy equipment, so when the restaurant I was working at closed she suggested they set my car up and we work as a team. What fun we had and the places we went! She was Louisiana BlueBird on the CB and I was Mamma Cat. Usernames back before they were a thing... I miss you Alberta.

    1. have I veered off my blogging path? I talk about what the cards bring out...tomorrow it may be boogers, like that hanged man card on the forum today. Euuu, I could probably talk about that quite a while. Be careful what you wish for~

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
