I Am Going Home!!!!!

I will be going home for the month of July this year.  I have not been home for a long time (about 5 years!!!) and while I will be happy to see my family…it will be a litle sad since I lost my mother in December last year.  I will finally get to see her grave since I could not go home for the funeral.

Lucians (some memories)

Remember when all you had wash on a weekend were your panties and ribbons…..your mother would wash the socks because you would dirty them so bad by playing without your shoes. Did you have to carry water in a paint bucket (skillit)?...
