Coincidence Discovered at Five AM Thursday

My friend Kristin in Florida looked at my blog post Absent Friends Not Forgotten at five am Thursday.

Was she ever surprised.

She sent me the photo on the right of her college ring  (U of Florida) in the exact same ceramic box.

No, we did not give the little boxes to one another.

 

Absent Friends Not Forgotten

Found my high school ring in this little ceramic box today. Not that I was looking for it. There were parts of earrings from yesteryear, too.
June’s fiftieth reunion will require rescheduling. I’m sure.

How Do You Like Your Toast?

How do you feel about toast?

Although I’ve burned toast on occasion this Duolit Toaster does a magnificent job, really toasting the bread properly. A milestone birthday gift from my friend Vincie. It’s  almost eighteen years ago, oh my.  It has served me well and is still going strong. I should have polished it for the photo.

What a vehicle for butter, Toast is! How do you like your toast? Jam?Jelly? Honey? Cheese? Avocado?

My granddaughter Anna’s artwork on the mug, at least a decade since it was given to me.

Here’s my sister’s Old School toaster in NYC from a blog post six years ago

Can you find one like my sister’s toaster in the museum collection? A toaster collection at the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine Florida

Did you know there a song about toast? My SIL James sent this Heywood Banks Toast, Yeah Toast Song which has had millions of views on YouTube.

Throwback Thursday Durand Illinois

My mother Marian on the left her elder brother John in the middle, her younger brother Robert on the right with the dog in his arms. Maybe 1926?  was born in 1912. Wish I knew. Would like to ask who is that gray haired man on the porch?

From my grandmother’s album.

Playing UNO Together 200 Miles Apart

All you need is an UNO deck apiece.

And you FaceTime, making sure your discard pile can be seen.

It took a few reminders for me from Laura as to whose turn it was, especially when we reversed.

Here’s Lauras selfie from their end in Ohio.
