Barking dogs- A yellow cat, Basketball - A baseball bat,
Piano playing -Mother singing, Daddy praying -Telephone ringing
Children coming - Children going, Mother cooking - Mother sewing
Brothers fighting - Sisters scratching, Blue jean knees - Need a patching
Books and music - Jack-in-the box, Tonsils - Measles, a hole in my socks
Paper dolls - Dot and Gwen, Cars and Trucks - Ed and Ken
Baby sister- In her bed, Looks like Elroy -Someone said
Company coming - All the time, Preachers, kinfolk - Come to dine
Kids bring friends -Home from school, Bring them all - Daddy's rule
Potatoe Salad - Chicken to fry, Egg Custard - Chocolate pie
Happy days - Come to me, From my bank - Of Memory
Letter from Susun this morning saying she was reading this from my blog and she wondered
if Edsel teased her with a cat when he entered Heaven.
Dorothy wrote this poem with memories from our childhood. Certainly covers everything.
I wish I knew when she wrote this, because it certainly was our life.
In those days we had either a week or two week revival and always we had the visiting preacher, visiting
song leader and our pastor and his wife for meals. Now revivals are almost a
thing of the past.
Today we wittness the reason Mother and Dad gave us this Baby Sister, so that
she could take care of us when we got old. What a Jewel she has been to Edsel
and his sweet bride during these last few months. It is almost like losing her father
again as Ed has been right there for her during all her years.
We all know Heaven is funnier this morning. He is probably Mayor by now.
and of course will watch the final game.
