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...

    I’ve run out of gas exactly once in my life. My mother was in the hospital, and I’d been running back and forth and back and forth with my mind filled with this and that — and just didn’t pay attention. Oh, my! What’s funny is that I don’t know how I got the emergency gas — but I know exactly where I was.

      Some kind soul must have helped. With a mother in the hospital, I’m sure you were ready to roll. I don’t drive much anymore so I’m not as careful as I used to be. I headed to the doctor this morning, then thought about checking after I got on the highway. Happily, I still had a quarter tank. I used to fill regularly when I went for my big grocery shopping. Food and gas for the week I’m not griping about not needing as much food or as much gas now!

    Yep. This is wisdom. How often pressure of normal life can mean we simply jump in the car and aim for where we are going. Cheers!
