Bring Up Teenagers
Posted On 01/28/2015 20:30:14 by kiwibarb
Controlling teenagers in the 1960-1970 years was somewhat different than anything my parents had to put up with. Being a solo mother sure had its moments. I had four daughters, and all four in one way or another contrived to put me in embarrassing situations. I hasten to add, before "telling" on them, that they have all more than made up for it in later life.

Here are a few snippets of the kind of things they threw at me. Daughter #1
Not sure if she was 14 or 15 at the time, but she h... Read More



GRANDMA's BUTTON JAR
Posted On 01/27/2015 13:48:27 by Notgrnyyet
  
Grandma had a button jar' sitting on her dresser. Every button she could find went in that jar. Any garment that was discarded she cut all the buttons of first and added to her jar. Some of the buttons were very old. There were glass buttons, wooden buttons, pearl buttons, shiny buttons, many color buttons, and just plain white shirt buttons. They made a beautiful display on her dresser and they were important to Grandma. Sometimes she would spruce up one of our garments with a c... Read More

I know there were other things she used them for but you get what I'm saying. The crock was essential to our survival i... Read More



PATIENCE???
Posted On 01/27/2015 12:31:38 by Notgrnyyet
  
Patience is a virtue they say but I sure don't have much of it sometimes. Persistence is the one I am better at. You know, If at first you don't succeed try, try, again. Yeaw, sure. If at first I don't succeed I get flustered, if the second time I still don't succeed I get a full blown case of persistence by golly.

I have lots of evidence of that to... Read More



OL' TIP
Posted On 01/27/2015 12:28:41 by Notgrnyyet
  

As I look out my kitchen window across the field there are trees and a fence. There is a small outbuilding of some kind there also and it looks for all the world like the view from our back porch when I was a child. That view was the big persimmon tree where Brenda and I played, ate green persimmons, made a fort of saplings underneath it. We spent many a d... Read More
