Can you imagine only shopping from a "Rolling Store"?
The rolling store was the only means of shopping for my grandmother during the week
out in the country where she lived.
There is an excellent article about rolling stores at this site:
And they bartered for goods, usually a chicken or a bucket of homemade syrup exchanged for something she needed.
Here is another store in "town" where my family lived when grandmother was young.
Sometimes, grandpa would take them to town, and my mother and her brothers would get to see the movies at this theater.
Mom and her brother Rufus
Later on, they all moved away to bigger cities, and life became more convenient in the 60's.
Uncle "Rufus" passed away last week,
gone on to heaven to be with grandmother and grandpa.
He will be missed by his five brothers and two sisters he left behind here on earth.
I don't know why, but life always seems like it was more fun, looking backwards.
On another note,
My friend Jane from Jane's Jewels blog is leaving blogging.
I will miss her sense of humor, her beautiful photography and her wonderful personality very much.
Keep on the sunny side,
Dorothy and Ms.Wilma
