Hmm… This week’s topic is going to take a stretch of my imagination. Off to think…
“/ Okay. I’ve showered and shaved. What? You tell me this is TMI? While all that was going on I considered talking about things I’ve heard people say that I might use in my writing, but then I forgot it all.
That’s the story of my life. I forget. But fear not! Those little gems will come back to me when I least expect it and they’ll go into an episode.
There’s a lady at my momma’s care center who’s full of great memories and I’ve gotten a lot from her. She speaks of how she should write a memoir. I tell her she at least needs to get a recorder and record all her memories for someone else to transcribe for her.
One of the stories she’s told me is of when she was a young mother and how she drove across Alaska w-a-a-y back-in-the-day when it was real wilderness with a car-load of children.
She was also a Beauty Queen at one time.
Something else she told me about the other day I’ve already forgotten, but she’s full of stories. I wish I had time to transcribe for her. Time? What’s that?
She’s a great person – the life of the party. Everybody loves Eura.
I hope my blog for this week passes. (: >))
Do you know any older people who have great stories of days gone by?
