Excerpts from my grandmother's column published weekly from April, 1937 to August, 1970, in many NE Oklahoma newspapers. So many concepts still relevant for today.

Kids say the darndest things - maybe it's all in their perspective.
Excerpt From: "Just Thoughts of a Plain Country Woman" September 30, 1948, The Collinsville News.
"A little girl was visiting her grandmother in the country. Walking in the garden she saw a peacock, a bird she had never seen before. After gazing in quiet admiration, she quickly ran to the house and cried out: "Oh, Grandmother, come and see! One of your chickens is in bloom!"
What fun it it is to watch the world through a child's eyes. How they can take such complex issues and instances and break them down into the essence. . . the essential.. . . treasuring and focusing on just the most important elements.
I hope your "chicken" "blooms" today!
