Besides designing Chevrolet and Cadillac concept cars in the late 1950s, Suzanne Vanderbilt, during a long career with GM, came up with a child safety latch, lumbar adjustable seating, an instrument panel safety switch and child seats.
I remember she always had a nickel for me to go buy something at a little shack close by. We finally came to the conclusion her children must have contributed. I was always fascinated with that little leather snap-it change purse she pulled from her bosom. ( I ordered a crochet one from Lisa’s Etsy shop, Sherry loves it.) Granny was a keeper, I remember her funeral, I was not quite 6 then.
Granny's was soft brown leather.
Sherry hangs hers (made by Lisa) from her purse zipper.
Have you ever known a person who was blind? They are fascinating. I have mentioned My Aunt Georgia. I know I am repeating, but the time as a kid of 5-6 I followed her into the kitchen and after she made coffee she poured cups of coffee. I had to ask, “Aunt Georgia if you are blind how do you know how much coffee is in the cup?”
Whoever it was kept hitting the door and not saying anything, so she fired and heard a yell. She reloaded the single shot, no more noise so she went back to bed. There was no body outside the next day and they never heard anymore about it. You didn’t mess with Bert!
The last time I saw Aunt Bert I kept taking pictures (which are not available now) She was getting tired, I think our visit was too long (with the camera) and she said "When you going to stop that mess?" WE all got a good laugh, but took the hint!
Y'all that read here, Be safe, things WILL get better.
