Picture Boards

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

My mom sadly passed away 6 years ago this month. There are a lot of details to take care of for a memorial service, least of all, the picture boards of mom’s life. We went through all the boxes of pictures at dad’s house, and of course, all the relatives added their favorite photos.

The day of the service the picture boards are all out in front for people to peruse until the service started and then afterward as she was cremated.

Choosing the pictures was really difficult as we tried to make sure everyone in the family was represented.

Will They All Show Up For The Game?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Roger was itching to get out to the basketball courts and play a game. That’s if all the guys show up. Somedays not everyone shows and they have to play short of players. The ones who come don’t want to miss time playing so they do the best they can with what they have.

It had poured all afternoon, but it was hot enough to start drying out the courts. They just had to wait a little bit longer. The sun was already poking out of the clouds.

Roger headed out to the field, stopping for Dan on the way.

Unemployment Lines

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Judging by the long queue of people it was no doubt another company had closed, and those employees were standing in line in the rain waiting to get into the building so they could fill out their unemployment papers. The quicker you filled them out, the faster you started to get paid.

I learned from experience that you needed to be in line before 7:00 AM if you wanted to get into the office that day as they shut the doors in your face once a certain amount of people had arrived. The employees did not want to work overtime.

Love My Kitchen

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Stella was watching her favorite show about buying and flipping houses. She dreamed about being able to flip houses. Maybe she could if she could somehow afford her first house and flip it, she could set up a business doing it full time.

She continued watching the show and saw them hanging kitchen implements down off a rack on the ceiling. What a unique way to find homes for things as well as decorating. Maybe she would use that if she ever got a chance to flip a house. Of course, she could use it here at her current home.

Mother Dearest

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

I kept a close look on my mother and her glasses. I needed her to put them down so I can grab them making her lose her ability to see.

She is sitting upstairs in her office in the attic. The steps are dangerous enough when you can see, but without her glasses, she will be off-balance for sure.

I had taken a look at her will, and it all goes to me and none to my brother and sister.  It is time for her to go.

She disappears out of sight, and there’s a sharp pain in my neck.

Research Without Google

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Robert, get your report written,” mom says.

“Aw, mom this is taking forever.”

“Robert, you can work faster than your father and I could. We had to go to the library and use the encyclopedias. See the books on the to shelf? We didn’t have Google. We had to look everything up in books, newspapers, and magazines.”

“Are you kidding me, mom? It would take forever to research something and write a paper on it.”

“Yes it did take us forever, but we had no choice. You kids are having a much easier time writing research papers than we did.”

Uphill Battle

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

John was pushing his aunt, Edith up the hill and could barely budge her. He saw his friends going to the park, and he called them over and asked them for help. At first, they balked because they were in a hurry, but John begged and pleaded that he wanted to go with them, but he was stuck getting his aunt up the hill. They were all going to the same place.

Finally, they agreed, and they all pushed the person in the line ahead of them. Slowly inch by inch, huffing and puffing, they got her up the hill.
