Yesterday, I was out picking up sticks from beneath the maple trees in the back yard here in Kentucky.

This struck me as a bit humorous.

When I was 9 or 10 years old, one of my jobs was to pick up sticks from beneath the Bluegum (Eucalyptus)  trees on our property in De Deur, South Africa.  My mother used them to start the fire in the wood stove.

The humor to me is that after more than 55 years I am still doing the same thing.  Many things change but a lot are just the same.  The sticks I pick up now go in the trash but once in a while I have used them to start a fire in the fireplace.

P.S.  Joyce is still sewing.  Yesterday she made a cosmetics purse for our granddaughter’s birthday.  Here’s a look at it.IMG_9627
