~*HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMAMA*~

you would have celebrated 90 years today, but the good die young they say...and your time came to soon...

i remember stealing cookies from the cookie jar, in the old house on Elm...i loved that house and the citrus smells that the garden of lemons and limes gave off in spite of the fact my cousins and i would pick at the fruits well before their time to fall...

i remember my chenille coverlet, and bath time with Mr. Bubbles and my Crissy Doll... and walks to the Dept. Store where you worked before the days of Tiger Express...

i remember Sonny n Cher and tales of growing watermelons in my belly for all the seeds i would consume... and picking away at the cherry tomatoes in the garden of the lovely house on Shaffer... i remember the puzzle my sis took crayons too...and how the crayon managed to clash so very well with freshly painted walls... and i remember the valentines day boxes you treasured, and guppies...ohhh gawdsss do i remember guppies...

i remember the myna bird... who thought surely he was yours ~*smiles*~

i remember Merv, and bobby pins...and Oral and ironing...and somewhere in between was The Wonderful World of Disney...and May I???

I remember an argyle sweater, and the price it had cost far beyond the store bought sticker...

i remember ornaments on the tree, and nights out looking at lights as we all caroled along...

i remember watermelon and green apple candies...and salt water taffy from Montgomery Wards...

the late evening walks to the mall, and sleepovers in your bed making us girls to feel like queens...

i remember hugggggge holiday spreads, when anyone who was someone would show up at the door...

i remember visiting your daddy and being taught well how to play pool...while you cleaned and cared for the house...a job i only wish now i could have known of then, for i would have gladly helped along...

i remember your tears, i remember your smiles... i remember ice cream on a hot day in July... i remember graduations...and the last one we went to together...

i remember things i wish i could forget, and i remember things i'm certain i wish to never forget...

i remember that last night shared with you as i held your hand in mine, holding back the tears wishing...and cursing...wanting and begging for mercy...

i remember your final call just hours before you would leave me forever...

i remember so many things that im sure i would sit here all night if i could and i would right of them forever and still not have written everything...

you were my best friend...you was my perfect love... and i will remember you always...

Happy 90th wherever you are...

Love me
