always had trouble remembering some things, like combinations and license plate
numbers, pin numbers and phone numbers. When the state I lived in changed there
numbering system for license plates to three letters and then three numbers I complained that I
had just memorized the last one after several years trying. "Well, I said give
me one I can remember." The clerk handed me a plate and said, “ this one is easy
Kiss Mom and Dad at 430”I hated to give up that number when we moved again! But with
that plate we started a license plate game as we traveled. The winner was the
one who came up with the best phrase- we assigned words to the letters. The
last one we had was Just Zebra Stripes.I never could
remember the numbers. They didn’t make sense in a sentence. Yesterday we got
our new license plate since we moved to a different state. MTH.
decided to make this my new mantra-“Make
am in a new city, and nobody knows who I am! I can be anyone I want, any
personality I choose. Wow! I can reinvent myself. Instead of a quiet, shy
introvert; I can be an outgoing, friendly introvert. Well you can’t change
everything about your basic personality.
of my new goals is to find out about my husband’s family history. He was a late
child to older parents so most of his extended family is gone. But with
websites giving us opportunities to see vital statistic records we can look for
his family. Previously we walked down the streets where his mother grew up and
then the street his father lived on as a teenager. But going back a generation
is harder. Who were his grandparents? How many uncles and aunts were there and
what did they like to do? I really wish there was an email service between this
world and the next. Wouldn’t it be fun to write to someone who has passed on and
ask them questions, get to know their opinions?
guess I should learn a lesson from this and write a journal for my
grandchildren so they will get to know me. Another thing to make happen.
It is Isn’t It?
Is it really spring?
Cherry blossoms are blowing away
Forsythia bends its blossoms in the breeze
April showers hover
The earth quakes in anticipation.
Birds sing their cheery song
It should be spring!

I am a retired old woman trying to learn new things. I've decided that since my children are grown I would start some new adventures in life. So I moved across the country to a big city.
I'm blogging in hopes that someone will read and enjoy my writings. Next I'll get out the old paintbrush!
