    Do we need to get the gun?

    Almost 40 years ago my cousin and I were at our house alone. I was probably about 12 at the time and he was probably 14. We were in the back of the house when we heard the front door open and we went to see who it was. The front door stood open and no one was there. We called out and there was no answer so living out in the country we started to get a little nervous about what was going on. We stood there discussing what to do for a few seconds and I said "Should we get the gun"? My Father kept a .38 handy and I knew where it was. That was when my Mother stepped out from behind the door laughing. She said that once she heard us talking about the gun she decided that the joke was over and she better make her appearance.

    I don't post this story for any thing other than I thought of it as I started reading this board today. You see my Mother died Saturday and I am remembering all of the little stories about her. Spend time with your family and the amount of time that you have is limited and memories will be all that is left.

  3. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I lost mine in 1990 at the ripe old age of 57. I have a lot of those little memories. One I can recall is when I was around 11 years old. I had found a small green snake in the garden. I wrapped it around my hand and took it to show to my mother. She thought it was fake until the snake's tongue shot out. Oh my lordy! That is the loudest I ever heard my mother scream! The memories just get sweeter as time goes on.

    I too am sorry to hear about your mother passing. :( I am glad that you have good memories to hang on to. I lost my dad in 1990 to cancer and my mom passed away about 6 years ago. You are correct. We should spend quality time with our families.

    Exactly corrrect and my mother knew that when she heard that word the joke was over. She was trying to teach us about leaving doors open and unlocked but back then we really didn't worry about locking things up like we do now. I am not sure if that is good or bad but just how things were back then.

    Sorry for your loss. I am fortunate in having both my parents living but know that won't be the case long. Dad is 83 and mom is 81.

    I understand how you feel...I don't have much good memories with my mom like you do yours, as she was too busy for us kids so I chose to have quality time with mine whenever I can so they will remember me with fondness -- all because of my mother-in-law who really raised me well and taught me how to be a mother. I have great memories of her better.
