    had a good moment today

    So I ripped out all the overhead loft storage in my garage to open it up.
    I had alot of crap up there, even things I didnt know.
    My wife saves everything, and obviously, so did my mother who passed it on to my wife.
    In an old picnic basket,(My wife put it up there over 20 years ago), I found all my old school pics, report cards, etc.
    I found an autograph book I had when I graduated junior high.

    Ive made posts recently about how I was threatened to be shut down because my woodworking hobby made too much noise and the local code enforcers warned me against making too much noise with my machines.

    My mother has been gone for over 20 years.

    I crossed out how she addressed me, its just a bit personal, but found it hilarious what she wrote back in 1969 to me.
    Fits in extremely well with my current life and current events surrounding me.
    Just sharing it, sorry if its really boring.(I believe she meant to say Make as big)
    I guess noise making was in my blood.

    Allen, the anniversary of my mother's passing was this week, 31 years now. The note you posted shows so much of a mother's love. She knew her son, too.

    Thanks so much for sharing it.

    That note's a keeper, for sure. Little did she know what kind of noisemaker you would become, huh?

    Hey, it's official!!!!!!!! Ya got a note from mom saying it is okay to make noise!!!!!!!!!!!
    Love the note. In this day and age of instant information, constant contact, notes like yours won't exist.
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
