Granny Tells You What's Going On

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom

I still miss you every day.

Happy Birthday to D3

| December 11, 2009

D3 has a birthday today. I found one old photo on my travel computer; it is cute, but not the best quality. It does have her wonderful smile, though. She has straight hair, a novelty among us curly and wavy heads. Her hair is also a beautiful color, I would have killed for copper colored […]

The Service Flag

| December 3, 2009

I wrote about my grandmother’s Service Flag today.  If you do not know what a Service Flag is, you can read about it and see it on Granny’s Genealogy.

Missing, But in Action!

| December 1, 2009

I feel as if I have been busy, but I can not tell exactly if anything is done. Papa and I made a flying trip to Georgia last week. This time last week, we were fresh off a wonderful Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike show in Maumee, Ohio and headed for Knoxville. Valerie and the […]

Village People

| October 15, 2009

Our favorite place is Greenfield Village. GD1 considers “Grandma’s village” her personal territory. She has always liked the bus and the Model T’s the best, but other things interest her, too. While we were getting ready to head down there, she told me that a person in the next subdivision had a Model T in […]

Heavy Traffic Ahead

| August 27, 2009

I am thinking in metaphors today, something that happens to me often. It works this way: I think of something, and suddenly I am in a completely different place and time. I arrive there by jumping from one slightly related topic to another, faster than I can really understand what is happening. As I was […]

Happy Birthday

| August 24, 2009

Happy birthday to Papa today. We had a nice calm weekend, in contrast to the exciting time we had on his birthday last year. We were both pretty tired yesterday afternoon, after dealing with another batch of tomatoes. We have canned 72 quarts of tomato juice so far this year. We are past the peak […]

The Lost is Found

| August 13, 2009

A little over a month ago, I was looking for my green bowl. It is the only one remaining of two sets of wonderful, useful Pyrex bowls that started my married life with me. I could not find it, and I was bummed, because I use it quite a bit. I looked high and low, […]

Happy Fortieth Anniversary to Papa (and me)

| July 28, 2009

Forty years seems like a long time, until you have lived through it. Back on Monday, July 28, 1969 Papa and I married. For us, it was the right thing to do then, and it seems like the years have proven that. I picked this picture from our book because it is such a great […]

Darn It!

| July 23, 2009

Funny, isn’t it, how things that have nothing to do with you become a part of you? I can illustrate with a little story. When I married Papa I became part of a family with their own history, sayings, inside jokes, and other little quirks. A lot of these things are the illusive things that […]
