The older I get, the more I read the obituaries every day. And thank goodness. Otherwise, I might have missed this gem on Sunday. (Actually Mr. Vintage Soul saw it first.)
Now, I never met Margaret Bassett, but I kind of wish that I did. She must have been quite a lady. And I certainly wish that I could go to her estate sale. Can you imagine the treasures that she probably acquired over her 105 years? Certainly someone who spent her first "fabulous" paycheck on the latest fashions probably had an eye for style.
But more important than her material possessions is that Margaret must have had a gift for telling a story. What a lovely tribute to her to share her wonderful tales one last time. Some day (in the distant future), I hope that the few paragraphs that sum up my life will bring a big smile to a complete stranger too.
