I went to Aunt Lizzy's house today. Her sister, and my Aunt Dorcas, passed away this morning. I will tell of that in a later post. Although the pretty redbirds that were perched on the old dying apple tree outside her kitchen window would not let me take theirs, I did take some neat pictures while there.
The last remnants of fall and the ever present flag off the front porch of the house they have lived in nearly sixty years.
A Better Homes and Garden magazine from the year they married. Note the price is only $.25 for this content laden book. She declined my $50.00 offer by saying, "If I was going to get rid of it, I would just give it to you."
My cousin took this picture of a fallen leaf on Thanksgiving day. Doesn't it look like a floundering starfish?
This picture of the old storm cellar is deserving of a story all its own. My two same-as-sisters cousins and I sat on this shelter many days watching cars go by on what was the main thoroughfare from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Little Rock, Arkansas.
Uncle Jack teases that we sat out there looking for "fellers." I wonder how many times my husband passed by on his way to his friend's house in Flat Rock. Because he rode motorcycles, I am sure we discounted him as a potential mate.
