Granny's Juice Glass


My late maternal grandmother was born in 1883 and lived 93 good years in rural North Carolina. I still use her juice glasses almost daily (although only two from the set remain).  It made a nice image in the early morning light. It seems the simplest of mementos can be the most evocative - a good reason to clear out the basement, attic, and any other nooks and crannies rather than leaving a bunch of life's detritus for others to handle after death.  On the other hand..............isn't that part of the fun of dying - you don't ever have to deal with all that stuff!

  1. Great post although "the fun of dying" phrase is a bit awkward. Advantage, perhaps?

  2. I thought of it more as a provocative juxtaposition of incompatible ideas - but awkward is good, too.
