Tomorrow the yellow limo’s will be picking up the kiddos! Some kiddos will tell you that they don’t want to go back to school, but there is still that excitement of the first day of school.

When I was younger (much younger) Aunt Jessie would get me a perm at her beauty shop in Menard and also get me outfits from Skeet’s Dress Shop. Most of the new dresses were of the late Fall and early Winter types, but come the first little cool snap and I’d be wearing them.

Aunt Mary would give me a pair of shoes and new shoes are not to be run in. They have new slick leather bottoms and you can easily skin a knee! She always saw that I had a pair of Black Patent Leather Shoes for Sunday go to meetings!

Too, I remember as Branden went to school that first day. Then it was Happy’s first day. By the time Brody got to go, I was dancing a jig on the driveway, as that yellow limo rolled on!!!! Now, they have kiddos of their own to get off. School does go on! The Yellow limo keeps a rolling on! Watch out for both———!

P.S. Remember to laugh with each other and never at each other!
