Finally! I Mailed That Pesky Form

Does this ever happen to you? You have something you have to get signed and then the mail by a certain date? Well now you have an excuse. Blame it on COVID. I finally got the form signed by the required persons and now it’s in the mail. What a feeling of accomplishment. I won’t tell you how overdue it is.

Image of guilt?

Dog Power

It’s handy if you can enlist your dog to pull your sled. I tried to persuade my dog Duchess but as I remember the snowfalls in the 1940’s, Duchess wasn’t too enthusiastic about pulling my sled. We had good fun though in those heavy snowfalls.

My Sister’s Birthday

I am thinking of my sister Ruth especially today on January 6th. It would have been my sister Ruth’s 96th birthday. Her family and all who knew her miss her very much. I hope she is looking down on us and realizes how she is a guiding star. We miss you Ruth – Sister, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother. – a Guiding Star. May you Rest in Peace.

Thank You Mrs Corney

Thank you Mrs. Corney. Long ago Mrs Corney gave me a Little Golden book, Prayers for Children. The inscription reads as follows:: “This book belongs to Janet Miller from Mrs. Corney, 1942”. Yes, I remember Mrs. Corney. I thought of her as a golfing friend of my mother.

One time my mother arranged for me to have lunch at Mrs Corney’s home – instead I ran all the way up the hill to my own home. 1942 – Would I have been in 2nd grade age 6 or 7?

I don’t remember Mrs Corney as being a church friend of my mother – but could she have been my Sunday school teacher? And she gave me the Little Golden Book Prayers for Children.

Now my mother must have eventually passed this sweet little book on to my sister Ruth and in turn the book went to Ruth’s daughter Leslie – and the book came to rest in Leslie’s attic. A recent big clean-out by my niece Lesley has resulted in the book being returned to me. Thank you Leslie and Thank you Mrs. Corney

Now in my advanced years I could say a prayer for these departed souls who’ were part of my younger life – my mother, Mrs Corney, and my sister Ruth
