As we do in Texas like no other place...we combine words yet still draw them out in multiple syllables...
we turn you all into ya'll...but it takes just as long to say ya'll as it does you all...get it?
We do that with names too....so that Gloria Lee...becomes...Gloralee or the even quicker version..Glorlee
I will sure miss her.
She died Sunday at the age of 73.
Man...I just saw her in the grocery store which is where I almost always saw her...we both attended Lowes Grocery Market...often...
Gloralee could not have had a very easy life...for as long as I've known her...she cooked or waited tables at the local cowboy restaurant. Her specialty was cheeseburgers, which she would say with the cutest lisp you have ever heard.
She made me laugh. She made me happy. She made me feel good. She was good.
She was a person who just lived her life...every day...just living her life right where she lived it...no high expectations, no low expectations...just living life...doing what she did and in this day and time...I found her to be quite refreshing. Honest. Nice. Funny. Hardworking. Good.
I will sure miss her. I didn't even know she was sick.
