Most of you reading this are close enough to me & my family to know that my mom passed away very suddenly exactly a month ago (give or take a few days).
Those of you that knew mom well know that she liked to collect……. ‘Stuff’. Nothing specific, just ‘stuff’, as much ‘stuff’ as she could get her hands on. If you didn’t know her very well you will have a hard time trying to imagine her gift of ‘stuff’ collecting. But I think you will enjoy this post anyway.
As you can imagine this is at times very frustrating for us. There is so much ‘stuff’ to go through! There’s lot of cursing, lots of laughs & giggles, lots of questions we wish we could ask her (First of all what were you planning to do with this, & did you really need three of them?)
We have recovered four, yes I said 4, cell phones. We have sold 2 of them & still have 2 left. (p.s. if you need a new cell phone let me know. If we don’t have one you like, we will put you on the waiting list for future discoveries)
The most exciting part of finding all these phones is the pictures. Each one is like a photo album of the time period she had that phone.
I recently passed one on to my friend Virginia. Before she took it I transferred mom’s photo album over to my phone.
Caution….. this is going to cause a lot of laughing & probably a few tears.
So here’s the recipe for this post:
You will see these two turkeys in this collection the most. She seemed to like them very much.
This dress makes me want to go…… Eyiyiyiyiyiyiyi Ariiiiba (I think that is spelled correctly.)
Mrs. Turner & I also have a brother, Taylor. He lives in Pratt, KS. If he were closer I’m sure you would see more of him in this collection. But for now he will have to be here in spirit. 🙂
Sorry, I can’t figure out how to rotate this picture.
I am very excited to see what else we find.
I hope you enjoyed this one. Please share with anyone you think would get a giggle or a memory from it.
