Mimi was Adelle’s grandmother. Adelle liked going to her house in Georgia. Mimi had many things in her huge house. She had teapots, quilts, plates, and spoons.
Spoons were Adelle’s favorite
. Mimi had them in boxes and special
ones hanging on the wall on a rack.
Mimi told stories of her spoons to Adelle.
This was so much fun. Mimi loved spending time with her.
Mimi said, “Adelle, now look at these on the wall. They came from many places. Some are from states here in the U.S. Others are from far away countries I have visited.”
Adelle replied, “Tell me, Mimi, tell me all about them.”
She began, “Ok, let’s see. There are ten spoons on this rack.
The first and last ones are from Finland. They were brought here by my grandmother. The second and sixth ones are from Denmark. We have family there, too. The third one is from Mississippi where I was born. The fourth one is from Texas where you live. The fifth one is just a fun one of Elvis. I loved his songs. The seventh one is from Arkansas, a very pretty place. The eighth one is from Pennsylvania. I went there with your mother once. The ninth one is from an Indian reservation
Mimi told me the stories of each of them. She had so many good stories to tell of the places she had been and family members.
