Too Late Too Sorry
DD wrote in her blog today about giving away a rug to charity and wishing she had it back. Made me think of something I sold at a garage sale and wished I had not sold. When I was young my Mama and Daddy bought groceries at a country store. The owners used to give my sister and I a bag of penny candy as a pelone and on Christmas they gave every family who traded with them all year a nice gift. The year I was going to get married they gave me one of the gifts along with Mama and Daddy's. It was a white pedastal cake plate trimmed in gold. It was pretty but not very practical so after years past when I used one of the poplar at that time covered tin cake plates I put that other one in a yard sale. A good friend bought it and later I often wondered what she did with it. I wished I had kept it but I wasn't about to ask her.
