Tennessee Won . . . and Other Thoughts!
After that I went shopping. The only place that I bought clothes was at Macy's. What took so long was finding a dress that Mom would wear. We found one at the 6th store we entered. Actually after the 4th store, mom was getting tired. So after that, I went in and looked around to see whether I saw some possible candidates. After finally identifying 3 possibilities in the 6th store, I went out and got her. Then we went back in so she could try them on. Someone could make a fortune if they would make "Granny dresses". (I'm not talking about the 60s style called "Granny Dresses" but simply dresses that an older person would wear and feel comfortable wearing.) All of the options were probably a little different than she would have normally tried, but they all met her requirements for modesty, having a little sleeve, and not being too short. She chose the one that I would have picked for her.
I apologize for not blogging yesterday, but I had so many family members in that I really didn't have time. I'll blog later about some of the "reminiscing" that we were able to get my Dad to do about his time in World War II.
Update: If you've not seen this incredible photo of the Atlanta tornado, you need to see it.
