I was cleaning up my laptop bag for tomorrows trip. It had been awhile since I used it last and Squeak(my cat) must think I need all his extra fur, when I came across an old paper. I almost just tossed it, looked like an old coupon. But the writing on the back caught my eye. It was an old newspaper clipping of my grandma's accident when she was 4 years old. My Great Grandma Ula had written on the back. Here is a picture of Grandma around the age of 4 yrs old with Aunt Lovella, sitting on a car. Aunt Lovella is on the right, grandma on the left.

The child was taken to a doctor's office, where several stitches were taken in one cut.

on the back in Great Grandma Ula's writing, says
" I was going east tho, he was coming west and cut the corner. Never held out his hand or nothing."
