Some folks were saying that 1944 was gonna bring changes. For me, those changes got an early start.
Dec. 25 had come and gone, but Mama decided to take down the Christmas decorations before the old year ended.
Now, this was as big deal at our house. We usually kept the tree up until New Year’s Day had passed.
To be honest, the living room Christmas cedar had seen better days and was shedding all over the hardwood floor.
When I carried it through the front door that Friday afternoon, more dried needles fell all over the front porch.
