No One Quite Like Rose

She loved to sing and dance, even while she washed the family's clothes on a washboard in a galvanized tin tub in the back yard, hung the clothes on the line, killed, plucked, cleaned and cooked one of our chickens for evening meal, swept, mopped, etc., etc. Today would have been her one hundred and...

"Oh My!" - An Apology To Kabu
