Memories happen at the weirdest moments…

Watching the circus with Trump and the capitulation he just did to the Democrats…  and a picture of Stone shows up on the screen and I got a flash of a memory and holy cow, I think this is a eureka moment….

WHY

This picture of the swollen limbs, knees, thighs bruised, I mean damn the woman didn’t miss an inch on this baby and what was her weapon of choice…

“A Yard Stick”… one of those old fashion long rulers people used who did a lot of sewing…. and Freda did a lot of sewing, she made most of our clothes till we were teenagers…

Covered in bruises…

This picture was taken that same time period within weeks of the first picture, you see the dent in the right arm… that is blunt force trauma fracture… in fact, both arms are swollen from blunt force trauma fractures…. the little finger is still broken and as you can tell, I never received any medical care…

but Peggy always did… Peggy always got the best of care and what ever she wanted and what ever she wanted to do…

Ever hear the story of Cinderella…. 

This child lived it… and Peggy wonders why people treat her the way they do… they may not fully remember like I do… but you get treated the way you treat others….

No wonder my adult life has been a fairy tale… I have lived after dying…

From the ashes…. Margie rose….and exceled…. and I got to come along for the ride… it was never a rod that damaged that child that summer after the TV interview… it was an old fashion wooden yard stick, that was swung with hate and enjoyment at the little girl you see above….
