Flashback Friday: What's the secret code word?



On Friday nights after school we would cross the field and head over to my Grandma's house. We would eat her fresh baked bread, watch Sesame Street on channel nine and we would play the game Password to while away the hours waiting for my Aunt Edie to come home from work.

Aunt Edie is the funnest aunt around. Our family developed the moniker of 'Ed' for her and we all love to say, "Hey Ed!" At first it started because we were small and thought that it was funny calling my Aunt a man's name. After awhile, it became our family's codename for her.

Aunt Edie is so much fun. And everyone loves her.
Everyone.
Everyone knows how to have a good laugh with my aunt. So as a result, we kept the name 'Ed' for her. We wanted to have something special, something all to ourselves...because let's face it:Only adorable nieces and nephews can get away with calling you a man's name.
It was our password.
A word that said, "Everyone else may love you, but we love you best."

It's a lot better than Open Sesame, don't ya think?

Just wanted to say hello and thanks for your comment on my blog the other day. It's always nice to meet new faces. Thanks for stopping by. I'll be by to visit yours as well. Your style of writing is so great...love it!!

So, you like my life motto? Sure, you can use it too.;)

It never ceases to amaze me how creative "you" can get when "you" have to. Where there is a will there is a way.

I could go on and on.

Hey There!

We've moved to Arizona and then to New York in the past year, so it's been a little crazy!

I am also in the process of combining my two blogs into one! I blog at The Master's Artist (www.themastersartist.com) every other Tuesday under my pen name, Madison Richards, and my other blog is also currently under that name (www.writeonedge.blogspot.com) but I am working on a single site that will combine both blogs into one "super" identity~!!! Hahaha...

I love the new look of your site... Please find me at one of my other sites and let's keep in touch!!
