Paints Of Happy Colors...

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

 

Two little girls sat playing with each other.  First cousins, almost sisters, best friends.  Their future was uncertain, they clung to each other for comfort.  They didn't want to be split up.

 

They had heard the grown-ups talking, they knew change was in the air.  They thought they heard that one of them was going to be leaving to go... God knows…

I Knew That Dream Always Seemed So Real...

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

As a child I had dreams that have stuck to me to this day.  Some seemed very real, some very strange, scary.  I never forgot them.  Some dreams are from things happening to scare me as a little girl. 

Not long ago, a mystery was solved for me.  I always thought about a very real dream I had since I was a child.…

Feeling the spray from the raindrops

On my face, my bare…

Time After Time...

 

 

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

The evening air has a nip in it.  Oh, how I love the cool evening air in the fall time.  To make it more special, I put on a nice sweather to make it feel cosier. 

 

Next, I fill the coffeemaker with water, coffee... I'm going to make hot coffee to enjoy.  I'll take my cup outside to sit at the table on the porch.

I Think It's Going To Be Perfect Weather For The State Fair!

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

 

Colors!  Lights!  Music!  Aromas of good food cooking!  Excitement fills the air, excitement fills me up inside!

 

The State Fair will open next week here, in Raleigh!  They are preparing for it at this moment.  I'm so excited.  I feel the same happy feelings... sort of a happy, breathless feeling inside.

I've Been Sensing Death Close by...

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I've been thinking alot about death, worrying about death, sensing a big, dark cloud of doom nearby.  I just couldn't get it out of my mind.

 

Yesterday, I found out how real all my feelings have been.  Skip went to see a cardiologist for the first time.  All the medicines he was taking, has been taking for months... have been 'bad' medicines for him.  Not only…

He Still Likes You If He Stabs You In The Back...

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Remember the son I wrote about recently... who had a health crisis?  I worried for his mother, I cared so much.  He seems to be doing okay, he will be going for tests to see what is going on with him.

 

I was really shocked at something I heard yesterday.  A guy I've been paying close attention to for the past 2 years... told another lie!  Time after time, I've witnessed lies he tells to make himself look good.  He has a…

Why Didn't They Come Inside? Where Did They Go?

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/Granny Gee

 

I was sitting at my computer one evening about six years ago.  I was home alone, Skip was driving long-distance.  I heard the happy sounds of Tommy, his wife and the children.  They knew to just unlatch the gate to come on in... just to be careful not to let the dogs out.  I trusted them, knew they'd be very careful.. so, I sat there.

Please Lord... Let This Son Be Alright

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates

 

I am sitting here at my desk, looking out the window of my mind.  I don't see anything, yet... I know that whatever I want to see ... is there.

 

I do see something now... it's another tall, big, blonde muscular guy, who reminds me of Tommy, my son.  I see him off in the distance moving around working on his big truck, doing maintenance on it. …

My Mind Will Find Peace, Relax... Until The Next Time

Until The Next Time... For Now My Mind Will Relax, Find Peace

 

This evening I held Tommy's Arctic Express jacket close to my heart.  He used to be so proud of that jacket.  He got it when he first began driving a tractor trailer years ago.  It looked so nice on him.  Now.... I have it, I wear it when I begin missing him, or when I'm cold.

 

I am missing Tommy this evening.  I was thinking of his beautiful smile... when he turned one of those smiles on someone,…

No Matter Where You Hide That Doughnut... It'll Be Discovered!

Skip was standing at the counter, enjoying dipping his doughnuts in his hot coffee.  I could see he was in another world... the world of tasting something so good!

 

Skip loves doughnuts.  Not only loves doughnuts, he can make them.  Skip can bake, cook with the best of them.  These doughnuts passed the test... they were 'perfect'.  Skip loves to tell me about how doughnuts are supposed to be made... don't overproof them, don't over-cook... under-cook them. 

 

If…

Our Pups ... Are Sweet Banana Pups!

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

 

I put frozen pieces of banana into the blender, along with crushed ice, a little cream.  I blended until the texture was thick, smooth.... it became banana ice cream!  I learned to do this from looking at recipe sites on my computer.  Oh, it's heavenly!

 

I spooned all into a cup, found my favorite spoon ( it is a long, slender teaspoon :))).  I took all outside on the porch to…

Granny Gee Is ... For-Real At The State Fair!

Yesterday evening we stopped at a service station, got out of the pickup to go inside.  Screaming... happy screaming filled the air behind us!  We turned to look, saw a huge ferris wheel going 'round and 'round.  The happy screams were coming from there!  Skip and I turned to look at each other... for a moment we were children again.  The fair!  The fair's come to town!  We were looking at a county fair....

 

We stood there to watch the different rides in motion.  Happy colors…

The Colors Of Granny Gee's Life...

I write to keep the memory of Tommy alive, to never be forgotten.  Tommy was my only child, my son. 

Tommy died May 29, 2010 on a Saturday evening ... he and his family had gone to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to spend a week.  It was their summer vacation, they were happy, excited to be going to the beach.  Tommy was…
