"The richest kind"

My grandparents made coffee in a percolator on top of the stove. Since my grandmother believed everything Mrs. Olson said, she bought just the richest kind---Folgers.
I always thought the key was the neatest thing. It came attached and you wound it around until it was all one tidy little coil and the lid came off. Too sharp for kids like me to handle.

Snow Barn

"Snow Barn"
Original Watercolor by Michele Cooper
Size: 10x10"

 I have childhood memories of winter in Eastern Washington. After a big snowfall, the temperature would start to warm up and icicles would drip, drip, drip like the timer in a "snow bomb". Finally, the whole slab of snow on the roof would come down at once....Whumpf! You could hear it clear across the yard, even if you weren't there to see it.
