1. While reading a Bible devotion. I didn’t know that, I must make a note.

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...

    “SOC” it to me, Oneta! 😁
    A story is told about a couple beginning to forget things, so their doctor advised them to write down what they wanted to do, so they would not forget.
    As they were watching TV one night, the husband got up and said, “I think I’ll make myself a ham sandwich.” She replied, “Would you get me bowl of salad?”
    “Sure,” he said. “Shouldn’t you write it down like the doctor said?”, she asked.
    “I can remember a ham sandwich and bowl of salad,” he retorted.
    Minutes passed and turned into an hour. Finally he came back with a leg of fried chicken and she asked, “Where’s my orange juice?” 😂
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.
