Have you read HOW FLOSSIE SEES FLORA?  reference https://onetahayes.com/2018/10/27/how-flossie-sees-flora/


Wish my grandma was still alive.  Miss her fabulous stories and delightful fun. Instead, there’s an old flibbertigibbet, Flossie, who lives next door.  Our first encounter was a fruitless flub when I tried to explain that is was not my fault papers from my garbage fluttered into her yard.  That was a foreshadow of the fuming floodgates to come.  For sure, her scoffing language did not display femininity!  She let me know that she had more knowledge in her little finger than I had in my head.  She had been a Flight Attendant and quite a fashionista before I was old enough to grip my bottle with its frothy fruit flavored filling.  Funny picture, That!  Her wizened faded flesh in a flimsy flock.  It was smart to cover her wrists to ankles; no wonder she was modest.   She forfeited my friendship. A big zero.

I’m famished; wish I had some of grandma’s fantastic fried pies.  I wish I had a grandma!

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...
