In the fair fields of Edelweiss,  Tommy first saw the ludic Lucy as she frolicked  about luring the larks with bits of birdseed.  Her life appeared so idyllic, but in truth she had been cursed  by her Aunt Augustella.  Aunt Augustella had signed an irrevocable pact declaring that any descendent in her family must be named in her honor.  But alas, Lucy’s mother, Aunt Augustella’s little sister, would not agree.

Gnashing her teeth and looking askance,  Aunt Freda declared, “It will be over my dead ashes, if this child ever finds a man to capture her heart.”

Upon being told Lucy’s story, Tommy, who believed that a faint heart never won a fair lady, hardened his heart against Aunt Augustella, lit a fire in a pit, and lured Aunt Augustella into it.

When only ashes remained, Tommy turned his lantern wick up to a fine festive flame, and went to propose to Lucy and ask her to share his name.   And to his great relief, and  saving him much grief, she didn’t inquire about Aunt Augustella so she never did know that Tommy was such a bad fella!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

      Thank you so much. I hopped over to see your blog – frolicking as I went! 😀 I found that your page was not available. Do you write somewhere else? And do you participate in Wordle? How can I find you?

        and my latest wordle is called “the candy man”

        and thanks for stopping by 🙂 or trying to! (you’re not the only person lately who has had similar problem – techno glitching is alive and well 😦 )
