wedding 3


Home, fortunate to be my pleasant place;

my hubby and I talk face to face.

Home, all my belongings there I stash;

got a lot of stuff, just not cash.

Home, cars can park on my one-acre lawn;

afternoon naps when I yawn.

Home, when ill health becomes hard to bear

Sammy helps with loving care.

Home, food and drink and company too,

if you were near, we’d invite you.

Home, a place to have the family meet,

games and songs and plenty to eat.

Home, sixty-six years since we were wed,

tied the knot with unbreakable thread.

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...

    ” got a lot of stuff, just not cash.” – story of our life.

    By the way Oneta, I do not see your posts any more in my reader. I was in Vancouver, BC, for four days during July 4 weekend and my phone stopped working. After coming back, did not see any post from you so I went looking. Hope you have not blacklisted this non-believer.
    Wishing many happy years to you and Sammy.

    No way would I black list an unbeliever (who is not vulgar) – my only blacklisting. Jesus loves the unbeliever – even the vulgar. I’m not up to that yet. Well, that’s not true, I love them (mostly) but won’t read them. Maybe the problem was that I was not writing. “Nothing” is hard to find.

  10. Aw that’s just wonderful
