Sasakwa, Oklahoma/Happy Birthday Grandma Jessie

Happy Birthday today. in her honor I’m posting the Garrison Keillor lyrics/poem that she said reminded her of her home town Sasakwa, Oklahoma. She said “when I read that I could just bawl.”

One More Spring in Minnesota

One more spring in Minnesota
To come upon Lake Wobegon
Old town, I smell the coffee
If I could see you one more time

That long, long time is always on my mind
I’m just a stranger with memories of days of long ago
Could it have been forty years since then
What happened to us? I’d like to know.

That yard, that tree – you climbed it once with me
We talked of cities we’d live in someday
I left, old friend, and now I’m back again
Please say you missed me since I went away

One more time, this dance together
Just you and I, now don’t be shy
This time, I know I’ll hear the music
If you would hold me one more time

Country Breakfast

Eggs with bacon and toast always reminds me of my Grandma. She was the best and it’s the little things like eggs that bring her rushing back to me. She’s been gone since November… you just try to forget that they’re gone. I went to her house yesterday and it was eerily unchanged. My Uncle has been staying out there and has kept everything in it’s place. The only thing missing is her.
