I'm Late, I'm Late...For a Very Important Date! My 2nd Friday Follow!

I can't believe it's Friday again already!! This week passed very quickly. So quickly, in fact, that I still have a ton of messages from LAST week's Friday Follow to respond to. (*insert embarrassed blush here.*) I do have a good reason.

This week has gone quickly because our family suffered a loss on Monday. My dad's oldest sister passed away after a short illness. I have deep feelings of sadness and regret because I didn't spend any time with my Aunt Nelle after my dad's death ten years ago. My children didn't get a chance to know this wonderful lady. And that's my fault.

She lives on in my memories, though, and I have been thinking of the good times, and sharing some of my stories. She knew I loved her, that much I know.

Aunt Nelle would spend Friday nights with me when I was young. We would sit up and watch The Midnight Special with Wolfman Jack. (Telling my age, here!) She took me to the circus when I was little and to the new J. B. Hunter store in Memphis when it opened. (She bought me bubbles....)

I spent weeks at her house during summer vacations. She taught me how to do The Camel. (It's a dance.) I never could do it, but she was a master!

So many memories....

So.... To all of you who visited me last week during the Friday Follow... I'm so sorry for the delay. I promise I will come visit and follow back.

You see, I've been distracted by sweet memories....
