Good morning everyone
I hope you all had a great weekend.
I just received a "late xmas present a DVD of the family movies from where we were young. Haven't watched it yet because I know it will be an emotional time seeing my parents who have both passed away. Which is what prompted todays question :

If you had the chance to ask someone close to you who has passed away 1 question what would you ask?


January 7,1782 - The Bank of North America opened in Philadelphia, making it the first commercial bank in the United States. hmm wonder if they had a horse-thru lane

January 7,1927 - 31 calls were made on this, the first day of transatlantic telephone service. Service began between New York and London. The calls cost $75.00 (U.S.) each for five minutes. Ouch !!

Word of the day:
scrabble \SKRAB-uhl\, intransitive verb:
1. To scrape or scratch with the hands or feet.
2. To struggle by or as if by scraping or scratching.
3. To proceed by clawing with the hands and feet; to scramble.
4. To make irregular, crooked, or unmeaning marks; to scribble; to scrawl.
5. A game I am really bad at playing

Today is Fruitcake Toss Day

I would ask my mom if it was a scarey or peaceful experience.That way when it's my time I would know what to expect.

In 1992 my only brother died..he was a captain of a barge and he got caught up in the ropes and went overboard....it was January so when he went into the water he didn't have much of a chance...I would like to ask him why he was not wearing his survival suit..I truly believe he watches over us all and especially his two boys who were babies when he died.

Ouch is right! Was that with, or without operator assistance?

I knew an old guy who said he called his girlfriend overseas, he said she stuttered and it cost him over $2000!

Fruitcake Toss Day!?!?!

Toss 'em over here! I love fruitcake!

I'd ask my dad where his Glen Miller records are. I've been scouring the house for them ...

Smile hello ~ hello ~ can you hear me now?


If you had the chance to ask someone close to you who has passed away 1 question what would you ask?


Are you calling collect or are these long distance charges being pay for at your end?

*
Actually I don't have any questions because I continue to feel in contact with all of them at different times throughout the days or weeks. Seems like I miss them but always feel I get like I get to talk with them.
