Pauline - my granddad's youngest sister coming up from North Little Rock for a visit and her birthday party.
Mending on her old treadle sewing machine... That would be the mantel clock (sat on the piano in the houses that didn't have a mantel) that had to be wound every night and chimed every fifteen minutes.
I suspect my little sisters had been left with me and Mammaw was looking in on us.
Wish you could watch Mammaw prepare a pie - she could turn out a perfect pie crust circle with about six slaps of a rolling pin. And it never tore when she moved it to the pie plate. And so delicious!
