Echoing past

Sometimes the past sneaks into the present when you’re not expecting it—today, when we were unpacking the heirloom tree decorations to apply them to their annual service once again.

Can you imagine? $1.19!

    Woolworth’s. Christmas ornaments, 45 rpm records, walking downtown from the junior high/high school to get french fries and coke for lunch in the cafeteria.

    Woolworth’s – I had forgotten about the lunch counters. I suppose all the bookstores with cafes are really just a flashback of sorts (without the fries).
    We finally put lights on the tree this morning. Ashlan thinks it would be good without ornaments, but I think Rey will want to hang the picture ornaments when he gets back (Carl’s mother makes cloth ornaments with photographs in them – it is just about all we put up anymore. I love seeing all the pictures from over the years.)

    Merry Christmas
