It's A Small World
I met a friend for lunch at The Longhorn Steak House. We went to a store to buy me a new pair of Asics, and on to the cemetery. We walked from Mel's (my deceased husband) grave to my friend's parents grave. It's a large cemetery near the San Antonio river so you just never know who you will run into there. Yes in reading tombstones I found the grave of the lady who pierced my ears when I was 13. What is the chance of that? I loved earrings and wanted that done so bad. My mama knew how I hated needles and was sooo afraid of them so she said I could have it done but if I had one and got nervous I still had to have the other done. She knew me well. As Amelia finished the first ear I was about to faint as my mama walked in the back door to say I was having the second one done. Amelia gave me a little shot of whiskey and proceeded. To this day I wear earrings most days even though the holes are not perfectly straight since I didn't sit still. Amelia's grave brought back many memories that I shared with my friend.
