84 ties


That’s how many of my father-in-law’s neckties I rolled and boxed up today. Why does a man need that many? Well, I guess there’s a female equivalent somewhere. Maybe shoes? At least ties don’t take up a large amount of space!

It was just me working at the house today. My brother-in-law said he was coming but didn’t show, and that’s all right. I’d brought back old letters my in-laws wrote back and forth and have getting to know them both, and even Nana (Mac’s mom), the one to whom many of the letters were written. I think about them a lot when I’m down there by myself, and I don’t mind the solitude. So many times I’ll find and/or move something and think that Mac was the last one to have touched it. Sometimes I even talk to them out loud. No, I don’t feel their presence or anything like that. I’m not sure why I do it, I just do.

Rough and Tumble must have been having their annual shebang today. At noon all of the steam engines blew their whistles, and as Kinzers is only a half mile away (if that), it makes quite a ruckus! Brought back memories. Lots of things brought back memories today, but I won’t bore you with the details. Maybe another time, lol :) Right now I feel like writing, although I’m more tired than inspired at the moment….
