Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee...... Summer of 2013
I had already placed beautiful strawberry plants on the top shelf, never thinking 'how odd' it was to place them... there.
My mother, who is deceased.... handed me a half honeydew melon. She had wrapped it in Glad plastic wrap. She told me to go put it in the refrigerator so, when the mailman came... he could get it. I took it from her... walked out to place it in the refrigerator.
As I stood there, I looked at the shelves in the refrigerator... I had placed strawberry plants on the shelf; now... I'd just placed a honeydew melon on the second shelf.
I couldn't keep the door open long... the shelves below... were in the freezer section. There were tv dinners on one of the shelves... the boxes were in a neat row. The mailman sure had a lot of good stuff in there!
I stood there a moment... a new thought came to my mind. Where does... that mailman put the mail in this new refrigerator? I decided that only he knew best... and later, when I came back... I would find out once I opened the door.
I woke up... thought about this dream... who has ever heard of a refrigerator-freezer ... mailbox?!!!
