Flattery, I Need to Get Over This Stuff, A Long Day

1. A nine year old boy at school walked up to me and said, "Has anyone ever told you you're beautiful?" I bit my tongue at my first inclination to say, "Cut the crap". Instead, I looked at him like the sweet angel he was, took into consideration his tender heart, and with eyes full of adoration, I told him he made my day...and he did.

 2. A corner of my bedroom floor is piled with the contents of a storage trunk waiting to be sorted. These items bring back wonderful memories. I can't part with them but I don't know what to do with them either:
4 lace veils worn when I was a youngster in the Roman Catholic church. 1960's
1 Holy Communion Veil. Circa 1966
1 pair of girl's fishnet stockings (with elastic band garters). Circa 1967
2 Gunne Sax dresses, 1979 and 1981 (this one is my wedding dress)
My first pair of baby shoes, 1960

3. I quickly made a PBJ sandwich with crunchy organic peanut butter and raspberry all-fruit spread to eat on the road. Ever notice how the most boring food tastes extravagant when you haven't eaten in six hours?


  1. Oh my - that was a delightful compliment!

  2. Nice compliment, going through stuff is always memory-wrenching, PB&J sandwiches are great any time and with cold milk too!
