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.

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.
