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.

We are Okay

March 4, 2019

There has been a lot of concern for Charles and I after yesterday's deadly tornadoes in Southeast Alabama.  Charles and I have no damage here.  There were tornadoes all around and the city tornado siren's went off several times and it was most concerning knowing several tornadoes were near.

It is a very sad situation with so many fatalities and still missing family members in the large tornado that went through Lee county.  There is not a lot being mentioned of the other tornadoes that hit small towns and communities around us so we need to keep those people in our prayers as well.

I am so thankful that we did not get a direct hit here and each time we have these situations it reminds me to always be prepared with drinking water and extra supplies and have our important papers in a safe place. 

I just finished posting the continuing diary of Lena, a school teacher, the year 1927. So if you are following the diaries, I just posted April, May and June.  

I will be posting Lena's diary more often than the others because I have 4 of Lena's diaries to share with you.  

It is time for me to go to bed but I want to let you all know Charles and I are good here, now we just have to get through this next cold snap with a freeze and hope it does not do too much damage to all the fruit trees that have bloomed.  Grandma Donna
