Linda's Letters

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Roses are red, Violets are blue, This is the week I saw the orange Ditch Lily in bloom.

Driving home from work yesterday, I noticed the beautiful orange Ditch Lilies blooming. OK. Maybe they were blooming for a few days already, but I only noticed them yesterday. Maybe I had less on my mind as I traveled home or maybe God just opened my eyes to them because He thought I needed a little beauty in my life.

Did you ever notice how things sometimes occur in threes? Like, you can go for months or years and never give thought to something. Then you are made aware of it and the subject comes up again and again.

Like turtles.

So why did the turtle cross the road?

To get to the other side, of course. But why?

I've seen three turtles in three weeks, all crossing the road. To me, that's a lot. I haven't seen a turtle in months and months and then suddenly ... three in the last three weeks.

OK, picture this. It's 1959. Fifth grade. Mr. Howard Borger says, "Class, take out your history books."

I feel my brain begin to glaze over. All I can think of is, "Oh no. More dead people."

That's how I viewed history. Lots of dates of stuff that happened a billion years ago and names of lots of dead people I was going to have to memorize so I could get a passing grade.

I hated history.

Do you ever have vivid dreams and then remember them?

I had one last night. I think it might have come about because I watched "What Not to Wear" for four hours straight and then a new show, "Big Brooklyn Style."

"What Not to Wear" is a show that features fashion stylists Stacy London and Clinton Kelly who give a gal an opportunity to have a new $5,000 wardrobe, hair and makeup/make up make over, all to help them feel pretty.

After "What Not to Wear," a new show premiered called "Big Brooklyn Style."

"How about this?" Harry held up my antique wooden sauerkraut masher.

"No," I responded.

"How about this?" he pointed to my large copper boiler.

"No!"

When he reached for my beautiful antique wooden grape harvest basket, I just glared at him and said, "Funny."

He grinned, knowing he got my goat.

"Just kidding," he said. But I wasn't so sure.

OK Folks, this one's for all of you who think you are losing your minds and then feel better after hearing about someone else who is losing it.

It was two weeks ago on Sunday. Harry and I went up to the church to tear down the backdrop from the Ladies Spring Fling luncheon about 1:30 p.m. We needed my keys to get into the social hall. When we locked up, Harry handed my keys to me and said, "Remember. I gave your keys back to you."

We went back to my mom's, played some Scat, had dinner, did the dishes, played some more Scat, had dessert and went home about 8:30 p.m.

Some of Linda's Purse facts:

*Purse Fact #1-Sometimes you CAN have a purse that's too big.

How do you know when your purse is too big? When you can't find your cell phone.

We lost another piece of our hearts last week.

Well Boys and Girls, this week we're going to talk about my favorite topic-Food!

No, not what I like to eat, but what the Presidents liked to eat.

Marilyn Frable of Kunkletown was the guest speaker at the last Eldred Township Historical Society meeting and used us for guinea pigs. She teaches cooking classes at Northampton Community College and gave us a trial presentation of "A Visit to the White House Kitchen," upcoming summer classes for fourth and fifth graders.

First she gave us a quiz.

This morning as I was watching "Good Morning America," I heard this snippet about President Obama's statement he made at The Associated Press luncheon about the use of a word former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney said to describe Paul Ryan's budget. The word was "marvelous."
