I bet about now, if you've read any of my other pages,
you're saying to yourself,"This woman thinks everybody she
knows is special!" Well, you're right! And now I'm gonna
tell you about my mom.
First, her name is Janie, but we call her Nanie. She
worked in a bank for many years, and retired the first of
this year. We are so glad to have her home!! She also
writes an article that is published in our two local papers, The Clarksdale
Register and the Sun Sentinel, called Tutwiler News. If you want to
out, I will be printing the weekly articles here.
The most important thing about Nanie is her
generosity...she always has an ear to listen, a shoulder to
cry on, or a smile to cheer you up! She has always gone out
of her way to help a friend in need (or, for that matter,
anyone she meets!). She has a long list of older ladies who
might need cheering up around Mother's Day. So, for years
and years, she has made something for each and every one of
them! And, we're talkin' about 50 or so of these women! And
she did it just because she thought it would make them
One thing Nanie has always wanted to do is learn sign
language. She had an uncle who was deaf, and also taught in
a school for the deaf. Her father learned how to sign
almost before he could talk! I think she has always
learning from him. Someday, I would like to learn and maybe
be able to teach her. I have a lot more time than she does
to learn things like that. I have put some links to pages
about sign language here.
Nanie collects miniature books, bottles, buttons, and
frogs! It's so funny, because she's afraid of frogs! Don't
ask me how this got started, but she has lots of frogs now!
I've put lots of neat frog links on here, anyway!
Well, I found a couple of cute frog pictures with
kewpies...and since Nanie loves kewpies, too...I thought
I'd put them here!
Aren't they the cutest little guys you've ever seen?! I
love 'em...and I'm sure Nanie will, too!
