My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

The Oldest Thing

Today is Old Rock Day. What is the oldest thing that you have? Please describe it.

I think the oldest thing that I have is a watch that belonged to my grandfather on my mother’s side. He was 100 years old when he died and that was about 50 years ago. I think the watch was old when he had it but I don’t know where he got it from. I feel it is the one connection I have with him because I don’t remember him at all. I was about a year old when he died. He was about forty years older than my grandmother and they had seven children. After my mother was born in Jacksonville, FL, they moved to Chinatown in NY. My grandmother lived and raised all of the children in the same apartment building until she died. Nobody in my family really talked about my grandfather and I am just finding out information about him and my grandmother as I find old papers in my father’s treasures.
