I am reading a new biography of John McCellan. I finished the book Fleta recommended a "On Gold Mountain". I really enjoyed it. After over 65 years of knowing each other, we each know what the other will like. I sure enjoyed the book and tried to read it slowly. I think it is interesting that Lisa See discovered that all the things she was told about her white relatives were not facts. A cache of letters written to her Great Grandmother were shown to her after the book. The letters expressed "love for a sister" not contempt for who she chose to marry.
Finding good non fiction books is not easy. I did not walk today. It is cool and I could go now. Who knows!
I am rounding up things to pawn off on my baby sister when I come up to see her in October. I am going to bring lots of stuff that I can't throw away in hopes she can use it or she can discard it. One thing she wanted was old newspapers. She uses them to clean windows. I have a big sack. I am bringing her tall Folgers' coffee cans, rat poison, pickle jars, an old porch swing, quilt freestanding rack, zip line, and I am continuing to look for things she might use that I just can't throw away. Oh, another thing is a mop that you can put an old towel in like Momma used to do. After you mop, you can throw the towel away.
My Momma made mopping a big job. She used her left over wash water and scrubbed the floor. After mopping, she always rinsed the floors. Momma worked really hard all her life. I am not like her. I would rather just read a book.
