My grandma in PA had a root cellar / canned good storage right under the house. It was dark and monsters lived in that cellar also.

If they sent me down there, I'd come back up gasping for air. If they sent me down for peaches, I might run back up with plums because the plums were closer to the door. Thankfully, I did not have to go down very often because I could cry very well.


Another memory re-lived thanks to your fine stories, Sharon.

Your friend,

Goodness, April, don't ever relive them, just remember them. If I had to relive that root celler, I wouldn't sleep for the next 10 years.

And as you well know, tears don't always work. Now I know I shoulda brought up those pears instead of the potatoes they asked for. That might have worked.

I also had monsters in my attic, witches too.
Sometimes I think they followed me here.

Nite, April, sweet dreams.
Thanks for writing!

If I had a penny for every time I heard; "If you don't stop that crying, I'll GIVE you sumtin' to cry about", I wouldn't be rich, but I'd have quite a collection.


I'll dream of heavenly places and the wonderful good food that always followed those trips to the dark underworld. May good dreams float in your windows tonight.
