Oh, the great things, to do with string:

                Tie pages together to make a book, then together we can take a look.

                Thread through a button to make a toy, watch it whirl, oh, what joy.

                Use in place of a shoe lace, I’m embarrassed, does it show on my face?

                Around the finger to jog my memory, then forgetfulness won’t plague me.

                Wrap package to put in the mail, make it secure, without fail.

                Braid together for friendship ring, a child’s love that made me sing.

                Tied between two sticks to mark a line, or given to birds for nest design.

Given some time I can do anything, just by having a piece of string!

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...
