Remember This? Friday

This one's for Muffy:

Mom owned a craft shop throughout my early childhood and we learned every craft fad out there. I distinctly remember making a macrame owl (well, without the green feathers coming off the ears). I also remember counting bins of individual pom-poms during annual inventory time and dipping my fingers in the huge vats of wax when Mom was set up for candle-making classes. Mostly I think I remember playing in the dingy back yard out behind the 2nd shop she had and sitting on the "poop" blanket eating our lunch. (There were always itchy wool blankets in the trunk of the car for such occasions which had been spread out in doggy doo so many times they smelled permanently like wet, woolly poo - how's that for a memory?!)
