Something Lost of Old Found



I posted this on my blog a long time ago, but it was so funny, and being months ago, some of you may have missed it.


We had an elderly woman, who was rather bad tempered, living next door to us when we were kids. Her name was Francis. We lived in constant fear of accidentally throwing a ball or something over the fence, into her yard. She would kill you if she caught you in her yard even for a second! Anyway, as our houses were both next to my grandpa's grocery store, and as she lived there for several decades, she knew the family very well. And having no family of her own, my uncles who worked at the store did lots of things for her and she sort of adopted them, and vis-versa. Anyway, when she died, about a year ago, she left the house to someone in the family. My uncle David was cleaning out the house, and he found this board in the shed. You'll have to click on it to read it. Too funny! I vaguely remember something about John trying to set up a toll booth in the alley behind our houses. The sign mysteriously disappeared, and we were greatly miffed. Well, now the mystery is solved: Francis, probably disgusted with our antics, basely stole our sign.
