Jill's Auburn Maine

A new journal page with memories old and new from
my home town of Auburn Maine. The great Victorian
house we lived in once has it's copula represented here
which as a child I barely noticed, my Mother's
watchful, caring eye, my junior high school, a
newer old looking street light, Halloween was
such big and fun and exciting, the church here was where
I went to crafts classes and sang, Carry Away A Song
as we left each day--I'd be clutching my beads made out
magazine roll ups. ELHS stands for Edward Little
High School and to the left is Squire Edward Little himself
who I knew only as a silent statue watcher
on the school lawn ...there's my father with his
tipped back hat, a Balloon for the Fest they
have each year, some mountain ash tree berries
which were so prevalent on the streets,
a 1940s style shoe for Auburn
was once known as Shoe City with several factories'
my brother was in the top right corner but had
a slight complaint about it so that's how the
while starry sky came about, my sister's straight A's
report card I had no way to better, My mother's crypt
door where she was kept till warmer weather for
burial---they made sure she stayed there with
all that twisted rusty chain...
Crows I have always loved
to see and hear and Sumner will no doubt
have his own page in my journal
as the brother I dearly love.

While the journal page was extremely well done, the writing brings the viewer into Winna's World. Great job!

Isn't great to take a step back in time when things were a bit more care free. when our parents were taking care of us. I remember Halloween in our neighborhood when my brother and his friends tipped over the neighbors out house. Your Journal is just so very wonderful!!!
