What is your earliest memory?

Steve me and Kit at Nutfield

I had to look at some old photos but actually remembered when it this photo happened. I must have been about 3 years old and my twin cousins 2 years old. We were on an excursion to a family we knew that lived in the country: mum and dad, my aunt and uncle and we kids. It was a great place to be for London kids and we were out on the common where everything was green. I am now 71 years old and my cousins 70 – how the years fly past.

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Does it matter, as long as you have not forgotten to buy toilet paper. My mum and dad always had it under, but it seems everyone else has it over.

What makes you feel grounded?

Having MS and a broken leg and not being able to go places and take photos. However, I now have an electric wheelchair which is a great help. The only problem is at the moment is the weather: sleet and wet and unfriendly so another reason to feel grounded.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  

Walk Through Feldbrunnen

We had one day of warm spring weather last week, and I managed to get out in my wheelchair. And then I saw the alps in all their beauty. What could be better.

  1. Winter is not good driving weather, no matter what vehicle is involved. We’ve got another foot of snow coming late Wednesday. Fortunately, I’ve got the cardiologist tomorrow. I’m so very tired of winter.

  2. No more memes for me. I will just do it here, but not for real; only because they are interesting.
    My earliest memory . . . okay, that gets complicated; but my first ‘realistic’ memory was of laying on the floor staring up at the cottage cheese ceiling in the parlor at my parent’s home, and being annoyed that I could not get around like everyone else was doing. I sort of wiggled a bit and then my whole world got turned upside down in a very scary way. I had rolled over but did not know it. All I knew is that I was a bit closer to the hallway. I had no idea how I got there, but thought that it had something to do with the commotion of everything speeding around. Then I was captivated with sunlight reflecting off of a brass doorknob.
    Toilet paper should ALWAYS hang over! It is easier to grab onto in a hurry.
    Rhody the little terrier makes me feel grounded. So do little kids who climb up to sit on my lap after I try to scare them away by looking intimidating. I am terrified of children, but they do not care.
    What made me smile this week? I do not know. Perhaps it is an undiagnosed mental disorder. Life is so difficult and so unpleasant, yet I can not stop smiling. I though of an old friend who passed away almost a year ago. I want to call him on the telephone or go over to his home. It makes me very sad. But somehow I can not stop smiling as I tell you about him. So, that is my answer.
