I am from ***** Farmer candies From old roller skates, and falling apart jump ropes From making up games, rather than them being handed over.
I am from having to go to the neighbors house for the TV, And from not getting one until 7th grade. From the Milton Berle talk show, that aired in the 50's. From American Drama series, such as Fireside Theatre starring Gene Raymond. And from brunette Elizabeth Taylor, and The Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
I am from “Waste not, want not,” and “A penny saved is a penny earned.” I am from Laura Lee Hope and the Bobbsey Twins. From longing to be a nurse and becoming one.
In my heart, and 27 years in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, those moments are kept, Those memories may not seem very valuable, but to me they are everything.
