Will the trio be there?
I know Don will be. He asked me to deliver some parts!
Hopefully a take-a-number dispenser will make an appearance. That would be nice.
Trish isn't at Lang's anymore..
Yeah, but Trish was there last year!
Good Morning Gentlemen.
I will not be at Hershey this year, nor my dad. On October 1st we lost my dad's mom, Annabelle Bulger, at the ripe old age of 93. She may have been 93 but she was only "elderly" these past few months.
I grew up across the street from my Memere and she got us 8 grandkids on the school bus each morning. I would read a plaque in her kitchen that read "What every woman should know"
1. How to act like a lady
2. How to think like a man
3. How to work like a dog.
This was never a sexist plaque to me, but a symbol of the beautiful and amazing woman my grandmother was, and the type of woman I could hope to be.
My grandmother was a beautiful lady who never acted like a damnsel in distress, but someone who liked to have her hair brushed and collect pretty things.
My grandmother thought like a man - never tried to be a man, but spent her life taking charge, and never waiting to count on anyone else to do it for her.
My grandmother worked like a dog. She hung clothes out on the line in the coldest of winter, gardened, canned, shoveled snow... She raised her kids, grandkids, and then GREAT grandkids making sure everyone was safe and kept in line.
I will miss you all at Hershey this year, but surely will spend the rest of my life missing the example of what a woman should be by the example of my grandmother.
May all of you PA travelers have a safe trip!
We have never met. But, what a sweet post to read this morning.
It sure sounds like that woman's life will be celebrated.
You surely know how to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. ...a lovely response to a sad time. My condolences on your loss.
Wish you the best for better days ahead.
It is always difficult to lose someone we love. Especially so when that person has had so much influence upon our own life.
Every day that you live your life well, will be a tribute to your grandmother.
I am sorry for your loss, but happy that you had your grandmother for so many years. She was truly a lady! I loved my grandmother too. She was a hard worker. Lived through the depression. She went from being the wife of the CEO of a corporation to the lady who ran the rooming house. They lost their business and their home in the depression, but never complained. Just continued to work at what they could do. When I came along she was running the rooming house. But she always had time for her grandchildren and it was a joy to visit her.
If Trish is half the "LADY" that her Grammy was she is and will be one heck of a lady. Having talked to Trish many times on the phone she is one HELL of a person, opps a swear word, but the truth is the truth and that is my story and I am sticking to it Luv ya Trish
