    I was 15 years old and it was near Christmas. I begged my mom to bring the tree ornaments down from the attic. She kept saying “later”. Her friend called and while she was on the phone I went into our non insulated attic, squatted down, and started looking through the boxes for ornaments. When I stood up, I lost my balance and, like Elly’s father, my foot came through the ceiling ! I had a young sister, about 4 years old, who was yelling all over the house, “Sissy’s foot came through the ceiling!”. Mom got a repair man that same day but baby sister told Dad about it the moment he got through the door that afternoon. Funny memories.

    Crumbs. geesh. There’s got to be more important things to concern herself with in life. And does she EVER take off that apron?

    Good grief. What a waste of time. I buy those sort of fuzzy hangers at Walmart to keep clothes from falling off.

    As for clothes disappearing, my sister, Dad and I NEVER put anything in the clothes hamper that Mom didn’t like because we’d never see it again!

    My sister and I sound alike. Her dog always looked from one of us to the other. I think he got a big confused.

    Oh, how this hits home! I remember Mom and Grandma whispering to each other on Christmas morning “I gave it to you to hide”…“no, you hid it in your closet”. That was the closet otherwise known as Death Valley in Mom’s bedroom!!

    Good question, how CAN facebook stuff be removed after someone dies? A long time friend died without my knowing a couple years ago and all her facebook stuff is still online. I was shocked when I learned she died. Can’t someone remove that stuff or at least post an update?

    Opal and I have something in common. Seven bags of frozen rhubarb have disappeared from my freezer. Two loaves of homemade bread have vanished from the refrigerator. Either I am losing my mind or we have a ghost. Husband, of course, thinks the former.

    We had an uncle going into dementia who did the same thing. This could be a bad sign.

    Nelson & his family live down the street. Once I saw Opal looking at their house through binoculars, but they keep the drapes closed !
