Remembering our 1973 engagement

We were in Bob’s Impala that day. It was his first car. Up until he bought that car, he used the farm truck. Neither of us knew that it would turn into a special day for us. I can’t believe it is 49 years since he proposed. Listen to my account of Bob’s proposal.

August 8, 1973, was the day Bob finally asked the big question.

It’s a good memory, but a little tough, too.

I sure do miss my soulmate. Love you forever, Bob.

(The photo was taken at a friend’s 1973 wedding.)

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

You can meet me most Friday afternoons. That’s when I help as a docent.

Don’t sit on the dog’s chair

Flinger was a large chocolate lab from my youth. He loved to pull us on sleds over snow and ice. This story is about his chair.

Make sure you choose your chair carefully. You never know if it belongs to a person or a dog.

Reminiscing

Barn-E my cat, knocked down a plastic bowl in the kitchen. The sound brought me into the room. It also refreshed this memory from my teenage years.

I hope you enjoyed this short story. I’m sure you have some of your own. Share those stories, even if they are short. They are all part of your history.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Wallpapering column

This column was written in April 1990. It tells why I won’t be wallpapering ever again.

I wonder if Rob remembers this chore I drafted him into when he was 15.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
