First of all I’d like to wish Rochelle a wonderful time during her two week summer vacation! For the occasion she’s put up a “re-run” but as I’d never seen the photo before it’s a new to me! Got to love some re-runs!
It was the summer of 1964 when grandma decided to redo the bedroom where I’d be sleeping.
She called in my uncle to do the job. He pulled down and replaced the old plaster board, the wall paper was thick: a hundred years of layer upon layer. Ah, the “wild-life” that scuttled away! He re-did the old undulated floor too.
I got to choose the paint, lilac, which was my favorite color then. He completed the job building me a build-in closet.
Being the oldest of 4 kids, I’d never had a room of my own. It was paradise!
