We arrived home yesterday and had a grand time at my uncle's birthday party. One of the gifts he received from his children was all of th 16mm films converted to DVD. We watched them Saturday evening and had many rounds of laughter. Good for the soul.
The other gift was of a quilt that one of the daughters had created with all the sayings they remember growing up with. You know how we all have those in our families? One of them at our house was "Don't take any wooden nickels". Another was "To thine own self be true". Another - A wet bird never flies at night.
We laughed over the ones that were on the quilt. Uncle got choked up and couldn't read them. His kids read them for all of us. Priceless.
I'll try and post the picture of the quilt tomorrow. What expressions to you remember growing up in your household?
