|My old friend has been with me a long, long time|
My husband bought me a gorgeous new dictionary with a cover as soft as a flower petal but it was too big and just didn't feel right. Years later, after my dictionary completely lost it's cover and some of the pages, he tried again. This time, it was smaller and shouted the word, "expensive." I tried, but eventually gave both of them away.
My long-time friend, Marilyn, came to help me with the moving this summer. We always had 3 piles, Trash, Thrift and Save. She picked up old friend dictionary and said, (as she was depositing it in the trash pile) "this has to go."
"Oh no," I gasped, as I retrieved it from the trash. "Spell-check seems cold and brittle compared to old dictionary." I'm a terrible speller. She understood.
Dear Bloggie friends..... I'll wager you don't hang onto old worn-out goods, do you?
