The top middle picture is of Linda and me circa the late 70's. We were wearing these sort of wrap around toga things that we made. The dark pictures to the left are our junior high daughters wearing them. The top right pictures are of our granddaughters, taken in the mid 90's.
The bottom row : The granddaughters, Us with our daughters, And the dancing grandies!
Later, she married my husband's brother and lived next door to us. We had bells that we would ring out our patio doors and Loudly declare that it was "Wine Thirty!" Ah, those were the days, My friend!
We "collected" phrases that indicated someone was not all there, like --
"He's a sandwich short of a picnic." and
"Her dip stick doesn't reach her oil." and
"His elevator doesn't reach the top floor."
Once we dressed alike at a karaoke party and sang, "Sometimes it's Hard To Be a Wine-O" (our corrupted version of Tammy Wynette's "Hard to Be a Woman" song.)
Oh, and one more thing. I was Lynn Guinn and She was Linda Guinn. I told her the only difference in the two of us was "Duh." I still call her Duh.
Happy birthday, Duh! Want to meet in Dallas again?

I found this photo on the Internet and I would give the photographer the proper props if I knew who took it.

I sang her a line or two from some of his songs. Nope. Never heard it. Not even freaking Bobby McGee!
When we were in the check-out stand, hoping to prove that she was lacking in knowledge of great song writers, I asked the check-out guy if he knew who Kris was. No! He had never heard of him! Gah! He said, "This guy will know. He's a music genius. Hey, Brice! Do you know who Kris Kristofferson is?"
Stupid kid didn't know either.
That was when I remembered that when I looked back over my shoulder, the concert attendees looked like a bunch of Q-tips sitting in the audience. Crap.

Ever hear of Ada?
I am working on a piece for the paper. I will post it here when I finish it.
Then you will have heard of Ada.
Oh, will you have heard about it!
