One Hundred and Four

My Grandma just turned 104 years old and nothing gets past her be it current events or the doings of her 9 grandchildren or her 26 greatgrands. She remembers the flapper era when she and her friends wore their galoshes unbuckled so they'd flap around, skipping rope in the alleyways of New York, traveling across the Atlantic as a young bride with her English husband, journeying to the deep south to help my mother when I was born. She is treasure trove indeed.

Growing up as a military brat meant moving nearly every year. I often wonder what it would have meant to stay in each of the multiplicity of places we lived.

My sons used to spend hours upon hours arraying and arranging their knights in preparation for the launch of major military campaigns.

Indiana 1958

This is the infamous tricycle the seat of which a neighborhood girl had the utter temerity to pee upon thenceforth permanently contaminating it in the mind of my young sister. She refused to ever ride it again. I however was not quite so fastidious and quickly commandeered the vehicle.

Deja vu

Sometimes you think you've lived before/ all that you've lived today/ Things you do come back to you/ as though you knew the way./Some things that happened for the first time seem to be happening again/ The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore/ For the smile you are smiling you were smiling then/ But I can't remember where or when" Frank Sinatra

Where or when?
