READY, SET, GO...
"Two little girls knocking on my door, they have come for a 'whisit' with me. Elaine Irene is only three, and Cheryl Lynn is only three..." That was a poem my Great Grandma H. M. Bussey wrote in 1956. Three years before the first visit that I appeared in as my oldest sister is six years older than me.
My little girls are now almost 23, 21 and 19 1/2. Visits have gone from tea parties in the back yard with stuffed animals to Thanksgiving with new fellas to meet the family. We have occasional visit on Skype. That is a crazy thing to me as I always think of George Jetson getting yelled at by his boss in a futuristic sci-fi cartoon of the 1960s. Amazing how family changes and the visits change in timing and place.
I miss the little girls in my life, but love these wonderful young women they have become. A school bus
driver/mechanic, an Archaeology student and a Child Development Student, and lets not forget their little brother the 6 foot plus Fire ROP fella. What amazing possibilities for topics I never imagined in my childhood or their childhood....amazing possibilities for topics to visit.
