open windows in a dirt road railroad town

black bathwater showed how hard we’d played

  1. Thank you, Fran. That’s my Uncle Laverne’s grocery store that was around the corner from my grandparents’ and great grandmother’s house. That place holds a lot of candy memories – the kind in an old oak and glass shelf display with a sliding door where you could stand thinking about things forever before deciding. Plain M&Ms were always the choice. Still are. I’ll bet you have a lot of those same kinds of memories! We seem to have walked so many of the same childhood paths.
