cry before 11. This is an old superstition that I have heard since I was a small child. Believe me that was a fairly long time ago. I don’t consider myself a superstitious person but I absolutely will not break into song before 7AM. I am not afraid of walking under a ladder (not unless someone is standing on the ladder painting something) and I have been known to let a black cat cross my path without screeching at the top of my lungs. Lucky for all of you that you can’t hear me sing because I can’t carry a tune in a bushel basket. I am pretty good at whistling God Bless America though. Long time readers of my blog will know exactly what I am talking about. If you don’t know what I am talking about, ask me and I will explain. Do you have any superstitions?
I love talking to my sis, Rae, when we get to reminiscing about our younger days. Lots of good laughs and memories there. Of course some things are better not remembered so we won’t go there. We were talking this morning about going to Centennial Jr. High in a central Illinois city. I was in the 9th grade and Rae was in the 7th grade. I was remembering this guy whose name was Frankie O. (no relation to your Frankie, Chip). He had this tremendous crush on me and boy it was a heady feeling. He followed me around in school like a puppy dog. He was cute as can be with reddish hair. I kind of had a thing for red hair until I met my Jim, then it was curly black hair. Anyway Frankie O, if you are Polish and still living in this central Illinois city, I often wondered what happened to you. LOL A few months ago I thought I would look up an old friend only to find out through Google that he had passed away last October. See!! I told ya, you can never go home again.
Rae and me in our younger days.
It is a lovely cool morning right now, checking in at 61 degrees. It is supposed to get up to the upper 80s today and then in the 90s later in the week. This morning makes me think of Autumn and after the long hot summer we have had, I am more than ready.
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Stay safe and be happy!!
