    I so enjoy your stories. Many a day I shed a tear being in the moment with your recollections of folks, situations & life.
    I know there is a story in you somewhere about mayonnaise jars. All mothers saved them back in the day of all families of certain generations.
    I also have another idea, but I have forgotten it! Will try to recall & write later or not…
    Thanks for your vision, your heart & your love of people, towns & memories. You, my friend, are what we call a good man!!
