Meet my two sisters, Karen and Verna.

Me:  “I’ve never missed Eleanor.”

“Who’s Eleanor?”  they asked.

Me:  “Our sister, Eleanor.”

“We have no sister, Eleanor.”

“I know.  That’s why I have never been bothered by her absence.”


Hope you are blessed with real wonderfully sweet, smart, witty  sisters like I have.  Karen and Verna I’m talking about.  I know nothing about Eleanor, who is not my sister so I’ve never been bothered by the absence of her.  I do, however, miss having girl talk with my sisters.


Challenge by M – September 21 “the absence of her”



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...
