  1. The Watch

    I want to share a secret with you all.... I have video to prove this....

    My mom gave me my grandmother's watch. It didn't run for more than a minute at a time.... but it was my grandmother's battery style watch so I cherished it deeply.... I took it to the local jewelry store and asked them to fix it for me. It didn't need a battery according to the jeweler.

    After my kids were safely back on the East Coast I loaded up a Ford and started across country.

    I had the clothes, toys, clothes and the keepsakes all neatly packed in the back seat and in the trunk. Along with the small items I had cherished... was a singer portable sewing machine. It was from out of the 50's, my mom had given it to me when I left Virginia Beach.

  5. The suit and the sale

    After the bar was sold. The seeker and I started to work the two shifts. The seeker worked the late shift into the after hours. I worked the early shift when the venders would come in. Then I'd take the paperwork back to the apartment to do the books at my leisure.
