May Day

Both of my grandmothers were born on May 1st.

Grandma taught me to play. She always arrived with a suitcase full of fun – terrible wigs, crocheted Barbie gowns, specially made nightgowns.  00009_p_10afereb6y0009_r20110504-081347.jpg

Grandmother taught me to enjoy being quiet. My favorite times were spent in her sitting room, both of us reading and eating her perfectly salted popcorn out of metal bowls, sipping diet 7up.
