The Golden Years

Pin It

As I look at recent photos of myself, it occurs to me that it’s a pity that we cannot always pick the time and place for things. I am not one to put myself out there, and now I must! But it’s for something I believe in with all my heart.

Still! I have been sewing for almost as long as I can remember. Why not then?

See those bottles of paint in the forefront? Yeah, I’m pretty sure I still have those exact same bottles, having dragged them from state to state, year after year. I use them, though!

And look! Here’s young Hazel! With the red hair and everything! Why not then?

Secretly, Hazel is a female version of Adam.

Why not when one can look glamorous doing ordinary things?

Why, hello! I didn’t expect to see YOU here…

Then again, sometimes even back then I looked practically ready for a rest home:

So perhaps I will accept things as they are. Besides, there’s always Nina…

This is from the first version of the book. Those of you at the library met the two dolls Dot and Betty, on the left. The lady in purple is real estate agent Marlene. She’s still in the current book.
Oh, how she is.

THANK GOODNESS.
