“Happy the generation where the great listen to the small,
for it follows that in such a generation the small will listen to the great”
~ Hebrew Proverb ~
Aunt Flo, she's everyone's lovable, quirky aunt. From the old country, she is a good homemaker, a woman who's in charge of her home -- and yours. Aunt Flo and her little dog, Fifi-Trixibelle, have come for a visit. With an aura of cedar and Evening in Paradise perfume trailing behind her, she slowly walks from the train platform carrying Trixibelle and all her luggage to the curb. But ... what's an old woman to do? "Oy, I've been valking and valking - so long I've been valking!" What a journey! A bus, a train. Now, Aunt Flo waits for the next lucky cab driver! You can be sure her directions to your house will be impeccable.
Deposited on your doorstep, suitcases delivered to her room, her coat (with the faux mink trim) hung in the closet; you ask: "May I fix you a little something before dinner Aunt Flo?" With a little shrug of the shoulder, a tilt of the head, one brow raised, and a weak sigh, she says: “A little soup would be nice dear, don’t go to any trouble. Maybe a little bread, jam - even." The thought of food brings a flush of color and a smile to her face as she settles into the kitchen chair, Trixibelle on her lap. A visit with her favorite niece, what could be better?
Personally, I think a little cup of tea with a few tasty biscuits will recharge Aunt Flo’s batteries - what do you think? Better have some dog treats around to soothe the savage beast too - it’s gona be a long visit.
