Thursday, February 17, 2011 When cleaning out my dad's house, the stuff I didn't know what to do with, I ended up shoving much of it into 3 of his strong boxes and then, once home, shoving them into the back of my closet because I just did NOT want to deal. Now, nearly 4 years later, I have, letters from me to them, their passports throughout the years, including dad's alone when he traveled to Egypt after mom died and so on and on and on. Now, all done and while learning, again, how the brain works.
Friday February 18, 2011 Rings
For Lauren: Just one of the things I found in the strong boxes, remember when you helped me pack them? Grandpa strung these, minus the 2 @ the front, together I'm sure for some very good reason which I don't know, probably, though, because they are the ones that mattered to him. There's a cameo that belonged to his mama, it's tucked, in this photo, into his highschool class ring. There's 2 of his favorite kind of jewelry: Native American with turquoise, and, don't be fooled, that one in the back is NOT a diamond. Of the 2 in front, both of which I wear a great deal, the smaller you bought for me for Mother's Day when you were 11 or 12, I wear it on my right-hand pinkie finger & the other is your grandpa's, I know nothing about it except I love it, I wear it on my right-hand index finger.
