Moments with Marie


The sun streamed in through the glass windows, muttering under my breath, I order my pie and sit at the  soda fountain I reviewed my surroundings as I did daily.  Today, I had Kimball with me.  He is such a sweet meticulous boy and my first grandson.  What a treasure.  He loves to tag a long for my daily visits to the Bluebird.  I am not sure what enjoys most the  stories, or the chocolate malts. 

I always sit in the same spot, remove my white gloves and order a piece of pie- scrumptious.  Kimball sits quietly as I recount the stories and share the memories. " Your grandmother Jennie would have loved you so much!  You know she was my best friend!" He smiles and nods.  I love you Grandmother.

It is May in Logan as we turn the corner at West Center and head towards home.  Kimball points out the daffodils, and I quicken my pace.

The Logan Blue Bird- opened in 1914.  Perhaps Edwin and Jennie came here in the early days of their marriage.
