grandma (AKA mary)    Posted 02-03-2005 at 17:52:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
I think I just found a new habbit, I feel like a kid with a new present.A whole bunch of people to talk to,and I do love to talk. I live in Washington so am three hours behind most of you. I don't normaly post this time of day,I am a night person and do most of my stuff in the wee hours. (Can relate to many stories,I can't spell, is one of them)
I hope Greg got my message, can tell many stories of early Seattle. Am normaly not a city girl(HA HA that's a joke son) but did live in Seattle during the late 40"s. Also live there after my mother died in 1932 until my Dad remarried in 39 and we went back to the woods. I can just hear you,My God how old is this person.This year I turn another 0, will be 80 in May. I love to tell about the old days, but try to keep modern. I have a cell phone, a computer, a four wheel drive car, two phones in the house,one a walk around,skinney jeans to fit this skinny bod,(DO NOT show belly button) still have only one T V, don't need one in the bedroom. Now that I am alone the bed is for sleeping only. Heaven help me, here I go again, talking to much. Pop quiz. Among the things I miss are planer ends. Any of you kids know what they are?

Hey grandma, you say you can't spell... you sure about "planer" ends? BTW, you're a young wippersnapper- my folks are 95 and 91 within a few months and still live on the farm, dad goes out in the woods with his new chainsaw and cuts firewood.

yep, planer ends were boards but they were also trimmings off pie crusts according to mom - put sugar/cinammon & put them onna cookie sheet. :)

Ok. planer ends. I think thay are the trimmins off of finish boards. and worked great for the cook stoves of the time.

Grandma, for sure you're a breath of fresh air. And, I just love to read stories about the good ole days. So, put your talents to work and write us a few. Any is alright long as it doesn't deal with logic.

Now, Dahlin, let me be amongst the first to bid you welcome to this little grathering of real nice people. just make yourself to home....gfp

Come on in with your stories. There's a bunch of us that are old codgery. We can learn from younguns and old folks. There is no generation gap on this board. Well........there was a 13 year old girl that was posting a few weeks ago. There might have been a gap wid her.
