My stuff: Lynette

Also, check out Lynette's blog, which she says has helped her stay connected to her friends in Mississippi, so she's not too homesick.

Lynette explains:

The items start at the top, go l-r, then down a line, etc

1. Rolling bag -- I like to have my stuff with me, but I don't want to lug it around, so I roll it. Everybody at work laughs at me.

2. Ruby Pearl, the yes dear girl -- When my husband and I went out to dinner, I'd ask him to do something, and he would say, 'Yes, dear.' So this is a tribute to him. It says 'Yes, dear' in a lot of different languages.

3. My camera -- I'm addicted to taking pictures.

4. Backscratcher
-- I'm a widow, and I need something to scratch my back.

5. Bus pass --
This is untaxed income! I can use it seven days a week, if I don't forget it. It represents the best public transportation system I've ever experienced.

6. Computer -- When I have my hands on it, I'm not eating anything I don't need to be eating.

7. Picture of Leroy, my late husband -- This picture shows his long ponytail, and it shows him being creative. I couldn't believe he was interested in me. He was so exotic. I was just tickled pink.

8. H necklace -- This is the most expensive piece of jewelry I've ever owned. The H represents my maiden name and my married name, so it ties in my whole family.

9. Cowdog and Turq -- These are two pieces I got from Serendipity, a silent auction at the Mississippi State Hospital. I hovered till I got them.

10. Picture of Willie Morris and Eudora Welty -- I love words, these two Mississippi authors loved words. I couldn't believe it when I had the chance to buy this numbered photo taken by Willie's son, David Rae Morris. It was at the Attic Gallery in Vicksburg. I had to put it on layaway in order to do it.

Thanks, Casey. You're one of my favorite things, too! And my sons Lamont and Leland. Ten is just not a big enough number for someone as blessed as I am, but I understand that it's all you need to fit the template.

Aw, this makes me miss you both!

Lynette said...

Jay, I miss you madly, and that's the truth!

Casey Parks: I found you through a Google search. Do you know how much I miss you?

I'm in Athens, Georgia--back in school for another masters. Can't seem to stay away.

I've got to put another comment because I forgot to tell Casey where I got my super silver H necklace. Check it out at Wendy Brandes Jewelry, her beautiful, unique jewelry Web site and/or her highly creative, entertaining and informative blog, Wendy Brandes Jewelry: Wear What You Want. You'll be so glad you looked and either or both!
