What I learned from the April A to Z Challenge

If I don’t write it out, I wont know it.  That’s not something I learned from this challenge.  That’s something I learned either from writing or from my life.  After anything worthy I like to write a reflection because if I learned something from an activity, I might not have really learned it unless I…

Zosh – Updated

Have you noticed that there haven’t been that many pictures of Zosh?  How come, if she was the best friend, (and she really was, their whole life.)  Well, the reason is, I needed something or Z! I have updated one post about her, although I should probably update a few more.   Because some posts are…

You Must Wait (reblogged)

The end of the month of the A to Z Challenge gets a little tougher.  I don’t think it has anything to do with stamina, just letters which are a little more difficult to come up wih something for.  I was search old posts for something else today and I decided i would reblog this…

X: Things I do not do

The things I do not do:  (Cross them out with an X!) I do not leave things on the floor. I try not to remind her that she has moved past the years when she can pick up things from the floor herself.  How demoralizing that must feel. I do not let her in on…

Why I do this

“Lest you forget.”  That is what Nat writes on her senior photo that she gives to Babu.  Unfortunately, this process doesn’t bring back too many memories for Babu.  Mostly what comes up when we read or look at photos are the same stories.  And even those she is starting to loose or they are starting…

Vi at the Office

I’m not going to lie, some of the end of the alphabet gets hard.  I chose to write about Vi, a girl who works with Babu at the office, because, well, it fits, and because I am always drawn to the background characters.  Sometimes they become more important and maybe Vi will.  Babu writes: Monday,…

Update

I couldn’t believe it. I was looking at pictures from 1936, 37, 38, and I kept saying “I remember this day!”  And the clearly organized notes on the back of most of the images verified it was true.  I had read about, transcribed, and wrote about the days these images captured, in some ways better…

Toto’s Zeppelin and Typewriters

Twice in June of 1938 Babu talks about going to Toto’s Zeppelin.  Not surprisingly, I was a little confused. Friday, June 17th, 1938 Everything went beautifully tonight when I dressed.  Johnny sent beautiful flowers both for my hair and dress.  Gabbie invited us to her home for a cocktail party but we all were rather…

Sunday Share: How do you want your A to Z Challenge?

What kind of response to the April A to Z Challenge would you like to read?  What about an A-Z challenge about Haiku?  Or riddles?  or Science Fiction? What a blog that is doing all three?  I LOVE it!  It is so well done and makes my inner – and let’s face it outer geek…

Rumble Seat

I don’t know what is so adorable about reading about her sitting in the rumble seat of some friend’s car. NOTE:  Neither of the above pictures are Babu’s.  I found them on Pinterest.  A whole board of rumble seat images!  Oh my!  I haven’t found one of Babu in the rumble yet, but I might….

Quid Pro Quo

It’s only fair… I ran across an awesome, and awesomely brave, blog the other day: if destroyed still true This writer posts her own diary pages, from when she was young!  I didn’t think I’d be brave enough.  I thought maybe I should just dig them out and burn them. But then I got to…
