Pearl Harris I think I'm tired of trying to remember 70 year old events. If you have been watching TV this week you know that there has been a lot of WWII material available. To me it has been a bit confusing. Of course, at times all this information was not available to us. I … Continue reading Memories – Good, Bad, Confusing & Wonderful
Pearl Harris No, not the trunk of the car - it's what the old trunks used to hold. They were always a kind of mystery to me. It seems that whatever was valuable was put in a trunk and locked. What brought these memories of trunks back to me was a picture of an antique … Continue reading What’s in the Trunk?
Pearl Harris Last week my friend called and asked if I could come on Friday to share a watermelon with some friends. I immediately accepted. Last year was the first year in 95 years that I did not eat a watermelon. I wanted one - but I remembered the trouble I had before - so … Continue reading YUM….A Watermelon Party!
Written by Pearl Harris A group of friends gathered a few days ago and we were telling things of the past. I told the story of my green hat that got me on a bus during the war to go where my soldier husband was stationed. As you know - or most of you know … Continue reading The Story of My Green Hat
Pearl Harris On Oct 29, 2013 I will be 95 years old. I know there are a lot of people older than I am - but I'm only speaking for me. Folks, that is nearly a century. I had always thought of a century as being a lot of years. But time has a way … Continue reading Where Did They Go? The Years!
Pearl Harris No, I haven't gone into preaching, but sometimes I'd like to. I'm not endorsing Lawrence Welk - but I listened to his program tonight - Aug. 1st - entitled "Precious Memories". It was old gospel songs that I grew up with and haven't heard in a long time. It blessed me in more … Continue reading Ol’ Time Religion Songs
Pearl Harris I love peaches! They are my favorite fruit. I wish they were in season year round. My friend and I have been going to Calhoun to get peaches for the past 2 years. They freeze so well and a peach cobbler is great in the middle of winter. My friend was doing the … Continue reading It’s Peach Picking Time!
Pearl Harris I am having to slowdown and I do not like it - but don't get me wrong - I'm thankful to be able to be up and going at my age. But I still would like to be recycled to about 4 years of age. It would be wonderful to get up in … Continue reading I Wish I Were A Kid Again!
Pearl Harris I was sitting here watching the birds and hummingbirds and feeling guilty for not getting busy and clean my house. My mother never wasted time watching birds or just doing nothing. If she sat down she was always patching overalls or darning socks, so I feel a little guilty doing nothing. She never … Continue reading A Beautiful Day for House Cleaning!
Pearl Harris But I believe I have a legitimate complaint this time. My electric toothbrush quit on me. I tried using a regular brush but my teeth didn't feel clean. I grew up using just a piece of a rag and soda. But you know now we try to keep up with the times. I … Continue reading Here is That Complainer Again!!
Pearl Harris I really am concerned about us getting our freedom taken from us. Slowly one by one they are disappearing. I agree that guns are dangerous in the wrong hands - but the right hands need them for protection. The terrorists can always manage to get weapons just as crooks always manage to steal … Continue reading Well, Here I Go Again!
Pearl Harris I've seen a lot of things disappear in my 94+ years - but I think this took me by surprise - Quit teaching "cursive writing". I shudder when I see some students handling pencils - they hold a pencil as if they were going to punch a hole in a bucket. When I … Continue reading Well – What’s Next?
Pearl Harris Can you believe that 2012 is almost gone? The years are just not as long as they used to be. I almost think some "weird scientific thing" has happened to old man "time" - but by 100 year old clock keeps the same time as my new electric clocks. I received a 2013 … Continue reading Time – Where has it Gone?
Pearl Harris I was somewhat concerned that we were going to have an ice storm this past week. IT is so "inconvenient" when we have this bad weather. When I was a child - about 8 or 9 years old - I remember we had a big snow - of course, that was a long … Continue reading Let it Snow – Let it NOT Snow
Pearl Harris One of my young friends, who I've been writing about who checks on me, asked me to go see the movie, "The Last Ounce of Courage". Babs Bryan was the young lady who took me to lunch and the movie. If you have not seen this movie, I would certainly recommend it. It … Continue reading LOST: Some of our Freedoms!
Pearl Harris Did you ever have one? Well, the week of Sept. 2-8 wasn't all that bad - but I've had better. We lost power for several hours one of those hot days, but thank you Claiborne Electric employees for your hot, hard work, to restore it. The only thing my niece and I were … Continue reading A Bad Week…..
