Our neighborhood in Lakeside on the lower part of Vista Camino was brand new in 1960. Since everyone had moved there about the same time, the neighbors were close. And Mom was a central figure. She loved all the kids on these two blocks. Within the first year of being there, they sent her a get-well card. It’s a great record of those children.Heidi
One of Mom’s phrases was ‘organ recital’ and it has nothing to do with music. It refers to a group of usually older people who talk about their health issues – ‘my liver this and my gall bladder that.” I see it often now that I’m older, that health is a major topic when my friends gather.
Forgive me, I do not choose to join the organ recital.
