TA-DA!!! ... Memories & Exciting News To Share ...

Memories of yore ~
I was probably a mere 9 or 10 years old. I went to St. Joseph's with Patsy Ann (a cousin) for Thanksgiving Bingo. Mother was so worried about not having money for food that year & as we played Bingo for my first time officially I got a BINGO but didn't know what to do so, I tapped Patsy Ann & said 'I have a Bingo, I think' ... she went bonkers yelling BINGO & embarrassed me to death ... I WON A HAM & we had meat for dinner ... Mother was so surprised, I got a hug. Patsy Ann won something, too, but I don't remember what.

Do pop over for a visit. Due to glitches on Feedsack Fantasy & Blushing Rose Boutique (this blog) we are now visible at this new blog. We invite you to 'follow us' once again ~ ~ we are now @ www.blushingrosetoo.blogspot.com ~ ~

  9. Thank you for sharing your "special memory". It was so vivid, I could feel your Mom's angst and worry, your uncertainty upon getting a Bingo, and your embarrassment at being right next to a "center of attention" - your Aunt screaming, "Bingo".
