Since I'm not out shopping right now, Thanksgiving evening, I thought I'd post about a shopping trip I went on last weekend. It's been a family tradition for years. Some of the shopping trip traditions have changed throughout the years, and some new ones have started. Like for the last few years, my Sister picks up donuts, and I always send a text to Vickie of me eating the donuts on the stick, her favorite. Well this year, Taylor, my niece , joined us.
They were given to her, by our Grandpa, many, many years ago. After our Grandma passed.
If I'm guessing correctly, in the early 1960's. And she gave each of us a place setting. With a letter telling us, "when the time comes we are to split the rest of the dishes amongst us."
Of course I'm not in a hurry for the "time to come". I have to say that I sure do miss the younger days, when us cousins would all get together and play, and our parents were in the next room playing card games. Oh how I miss those days.
These dishes are a very special gift that I will cherish forever.
Vickie, Cindy, Theresa
Here they are in our house.
I will post the rest of our gifts, and the rest of the story later...
Happy Thanksgiving and Good Night!
