Memoir Writing Prompt: How Many Bleaches have You Warmed?

When I was a child, sports didn’t have much of an impact in our home. Too busy with farm work for our parents to drive us back into town for practices or games. My husband introduced me to the world of sports—all kinds of sports—anything that involved a round or oval sphere of leather. Our […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: How did You Celebrate Presidents’ Day?

When I was a child in the 50s and 60s, we celebrated Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12th and George Washington’s birthday on February 22nd. Starting in first grade, we studied these two great leaders in depth and what they did for America. Both days were seen as holidays, but we still went to school. […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Did you lick any cows’ tongues in your childhood?

I did . . . once . . . maybe twice. I was a farm girl, why not? And Mom cooked cow tongue for our dining pleasure. I spent several childhood days looking for dead birds so my siblings and I could have a funeral and bury the dear soul under the huge oak tree. […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day as a child?

To make the prettiest valentine box ever seemed to be my goal every year in grade school. Using colored tissue paper, construction paper, and, sometimes, newspaper gave me so much material for my creative mind. I folded red construction paper and cut out hearts to paste on the box. However, it never failed that by […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

This is one of those lessons I learned very young in life. Even though Mom never seemed to be able to stretch her grocery money far enough to include anything other than powdered cocoa, I have always loved chocolate. Chocolate milk, hot chocolate, Hershey’s chocolate bar, chocolate kisses, etc. etc., etc . . . right […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: National Send a Card to a Friend Day

My Mom sent cards of greeting all the time: get well, sympathy, birthday, anniversary, and just thinking of you. Now, almost 97 years old, Mom still sends greeting cards and loves receiving them in return. She has brought so much joy to so many people over the years. Many of my relatives wrote letters and […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What mistake did you make in life and what lesson did you learn?

“To err is human; to forgive divine” was first quoted by the famous poet, Alexander Pope (1688-1744). Today, let’s consider only the first independent clause “to err is human.” We’ll tackle the last part another day. When I asked my 96-year-old mother what she would do differently if she had the opportunity to live life […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What Material Item do You Hold Dear as a Family Treasure?

In two months, Mom will be 97 years old. In 1928, her third grade teacher gave her this glass basket vase. Throughout my growing up, the vase held pansies, daisies, violets, and dandelions on a regular basis. When Mom sold our Pennsylvania farm, the vase was one thing Mom could not sell at the estate […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What was Your Go-To Breakfast as a Child?

Today is San Antonio’s Cowboy Breakfast, the world’s largest breakfast, serving tacos with all the trimmings, and it’s all free to the public. This event kicks off the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo that will run for three weeks.  It makes me think back to my breakfasts in the 50s and 60s. Mom believed […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What’s Special about Your Generation?

This is a longer post today because I wanted to share “Our Special Group” with you that my cousin passed on to me via facebook. I googled it and the original author is unknown; that’s a shame, because it’s a well-written listing of legacy. The Silent Generation was born in the 1930s and 40s. I […]
