Quote of the Day:
A child needs a grandparent, anybodies grandparent,
to grow a little more securely into an unfamiliar
Traditional things are so much fun for a grandmother. The child on the left is my son who is now about to be 43 years old. That little ride is called "Ollie". I thought it was great. He was able to ride it without falling off too much. So when my grandson, Luke, came along, I wanted to get him one. Well, the only one that I found was on Ebay and was $40. I would also have to pay for the cost of sending it to Germany because that is where his dad is stationed.
Well, I was having a yard sale one weekend and these two ladies came and purchased a few things. As they opened the trunk of their car and took out some things to make room, I noticed the "Ollie". Asked her how much she'd paid for it. She said $0.50. I was so surprised. I offered her $10 and she took it and got Luke great riding toy that his sister now uses. I had a great yard sale but my own purchase made my day.
This is Luke's little sister, Lily. She is wearing a coat and hat that is 62 years old. I am trying desperately to find the picture I have of her Mama wearing the same coat. My mom and my sister are looking for a picture of me wearing that coat. As I said, tradition and memories are so wonderful to me. I hope I can live to see the day that Lily's daughter wears it.
Thank you for letting me share.
