We were told sometime back by a computer tech, we had to get rid of some of our pictures! So like anybody does in the spring, we have been housecleaning the computer. We plan to put lots of them on a disc, so we don't lose them and toss what we don't care so much about.
But here is my problem, almost every picture I have saved tells me a little story, and I really love that. With this picture I am gonna show you today, its about my neighborhood when I was a kid. You couldn't go to anyone's house at certain times of the day because all the old ladies couldn't miss "their stories" which means soap operas. When they came to our house, they would drink coffee and TALK endlessly about what was going on . It would sort of aggravate my Mom, who couldn't hear well enough to make sense of the stories but she would pretend to be interested. So you can see why I fell in love with this
A very long time ago, there were about 20 or more stories (soaps) on daily. You had to carefully choose what to hear or see. But I think today they are down to six or so! But like my mother, I never caught the pleasure of seeing them!
Happy Springy Weather to everyone!
