2. I swear I see the light turn green before anyone else
3. I can "feel" stuff happen before it happens.
4. Sometimes, I know what you're going to say before you say it...even if you don't end up saying it.
5. I can whip up a pan of brownies faster than anyone you know.

connecting with the past

1. grandma mabey's orange rolls and hot cocoa
2. grandpa pouring grandma's hot cocoa on her plate while describing how large the cobb of the corn used to be (as big around as the rim of the cup...)
3. grandma's dream that she and grandpa were moving to a condo...but she was still weeding the garden in front of the house as they were saying goodbye to neighbors.
4. my great grandpa mabey loves does grandpa mabey, and so do i
5. great grandma mabey was a "large-set" woman and a great teacher. she chopped wood and told great stories.
6. grandpa wouldn't give his farm days for anything. he's really good at thinning and topping sugar beats.
7. great grandpa mabey was slow to adjust to mechanical farming...the machines couldn't bail the hay as nice.
8. picturing grandma getting caught playing tic-tac-toe on the side of the red brick school building with white chalk by her uncle's girlfriend/school teacher.
