This ‘n That…….Memories

     While doing a little housework in anticipation of a visit from grandson Jake and his brand new bride, I was reminded of one of my favorite chores when I was… well, it was a very long while ago. When I lived in the house on 39th Street in Galveston, Texas.

     I can remember deriving great satisfaction from being down on my hands and knees scrubbing the baseboards. Hot soapy water and rags and inch by inch watching the grime disappear. Strangely, I can’t remember any other cleaning chore — just those baseboards.

     Maybe I’ll go get a wad of paper towels and the 409 squirter. Nah, I’ll just keep the old memory.
