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?!!!
