It brought a smile to me today as I remembered this family story. I’m so glad I saved it in my column.
You don’t have to have a weekly column to save family stories. Just pick up a pen and write your memories down. Later they will bring you joy … of course, others will not always bring joy, but family stories will brighten your day.
If I hadn’t written this in a column, I would never have remembered any of the day. I don’t remember what class I took that fall, maybe because I was half asleep during the class. But that’s only a small part of this happening. Listen and hear what I was sharing.
Bob isn’t mentioned as he was working his long night shift at Seymour Canning Company. That took him away from the family well into October and then harvest took his attention.
Memories are good to save and share. I hope you consider saving some of your own.
