The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Hurricane Michael

October 11, 2018

Hello everyone! This is Grandma Donna's daughter. As some of you know, Hurricane Michael hit the Gulf Coast, Southeast corner of Alabama and then kept going. There is a lot of damage to mom's city of Dothan and 80% of the city has lost power. My mom wanted me to let you know that they are ok but have a lot of work and repairs to do due to high wind damage. Their power is out and also internet. Mom wanted me to tell you she is reading your emails from her phone but cannot respond because she is trying to save power on her phone for emergencies. It may take some time for her to get back to posting. She said to tell you that when the power is out take frequent cool baths and to cook pancakes. :) 

...and she said to say, Take Care
