I miss you Mom.

In 1973 my dad’s work transferred to Chicago. One evening when he got home he went straight to shower.

Now mom loved to decorate the house differently. She had advertised the kitchen and living room furniture so she could buy the new furniture. Well to dad’s surprise we he came back out from showering, Mom had sold all of the furniture. She had replaced it with crates for chairs and TV trays for make shift tables.

His jaw dropped to the floor and she laughed harder than I had seen her laugh. By the next day the new furniture was delivered before he arrived home. When he got there he stuck his head in to see if there was anything else gone. Instead found his newly decorated home. They often laughed about that day and so do I when I think about it. Good times.
