Howdy. Yes, that is dust on the bottles. Probably years of dust. I found these in our basement along with a Scrapbook of Aunt Byrd's. She was Dr. Wilson wife. It is as if the ancestors tell me where these items are located as I do not go looking for them. Just like the letters of Grandma H, I was not looking for anything. I had taken some item to the basement to put away when through fate or whatever, I get a feeling I should check this out and sure enough it will be some historical item that needs to be saved from the basement.
I have not been hiding in the basement just the usually holidays visiting. Two visit were not traditional but may become one. First off, our family met big Sissy family at a nice restaurant and had a wonderful visit. Then, Thanksgiving day, we had the oldest cousin along with Prince's brothers family minus the nephew who lives in Colorado. Then on Friday we met my best and oldest friend and her husband for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. All in all it was a wonderful beginning to the Holidays.
The only downside was that first niece and big Sis got some flu and then Prince got the flu and Puppy had a stomach bug. So far Mimi and I have escaped the Malay.
The kitty justice is I will have to put on my Robert Frost attitude as I have miles to go before and after the New Year.
