Grandma Daisy's wit and charm!
I was recently going through some of the writings of my great grandmother, Daisy Blanche Brandon, and found what I consider to be a personality gem. In 1982 she wrote, "Here it is Oct 3 1982, I was born Feb 6, 1904 and as I grew up through the years, I guess I never did take" and the journal entry ends there. The next lines are what I enjoy about writing with personality. "May 24, 1983, I don’t know now what I never did take back in Oct 1982 but I guess I never did take time to live. I have always been so busy doing nothing I have never taken time to live." The phrase "I don’t know now what I never did take back in Oct 1982" is brilliant. I wasn't quite 9 years old when grandmother passed about so I'm grateful for this little glimpse of wit.
