After Grandpa died and Mom was living alone next door, I used to go there every evening and we’d watch shows together if I wasn’t reading to her.
Now she’s gone, and #4 Daughter is living in her house and I’m living alone, and #4 comes here almost every evening and we watch shows together.
Every time she gets up to go, I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying what Mom said to me every time I got up to go. Maybe I’ll stop biting my tongue and continue the tradition, already.
Mom would say,
You on foot or on horseback?
Meaning did I walk or drive. I drove when it was raining, cold, or pitch dark. There are possums out there. You gotta look out for them marsupials. Fellow Bab 5 fans know what I mean.
