My Comedian Brother Jack

In every family, I think, there is one person who stands out in one way or another. In my family it is Jack, who is two years older than myself. In other words, he is the one word we do not like to think about!  He is OLD! (Sorry about that Jack, but it’s true). I […]

Thinkin’ About My Mama

I don’t know why, but for the last few weeks I have had Mama on my mind. I’ve been remembering so many things.  My mama was just fifteen when her mother died from complications from Asthma. Back then nothing much could be done for asthmatics. They didn’t have inhalers and steroids that one can just […]

Loretta, My Best Friend

Today would have been Lo’s  74th birthday. I was one year and eight months older than she was. From the time we were small, where you saw one of us, you saw the other. We loved each other so much and always had such a strong bond. For some reason, I felt more like her […]

The Christmas Spirit

Yesterday was my sister Edith’s 90th birthday. My sister Sue and her daughter Debbie and I went to visit her last night. We had a wonderful visit. My nephew Jerry (Edith’s minister son and his wife Linda) were there and we talked and laughed about the past and present. Such a happy time, even though […]

Went To The Foot Doctor

Went to the foot doctor to have my big toes checked. They are healing nicely. Then came back. Sue and I went to see Edith, then on to Wal-Mart to get her groceries. I am really tired tonight and about to hit the sack. The Doctors said they could not do anything else for Billie. […]

Spent The Day With Sue And Sherry

Kevin left out around noon today. I spent the rest of the day with Sue and then Sherry. Carmen gave Sherry that little dog named Chico. He don’t like men and barks everytime one walks in. Mark doesn’t like him and said if he ever bit him that he wouldn’t come back no more. Sounds […]

A Very Good Day

It’s been a very good day. So nice to walk out and have transportation sitting out front. I had a very nice supper. Sue gave me some squash and cucumbers that came from Sarah’s garden. So I fried the squash and made some biscuits. First biscuits I have made in a long time. It’s a […]
