Randy, at Genea-Musings has given us this assignment tonight:
1) What did your mother really like to do in her work or spare time? Did she have hobbies, or a workshop, or did she like cooking, or reading, or watching TV?
3) Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment on this post, or in a Facebook or Google+ post.
My mother, Joyce Parker Orshoski, like to do many things. She led a children's church choir for many years. She loved to plan family picnics and holiday gatherings. She enjoyed going to all the school and sporting events of her children and grandchildren. But the thing I recall most about Mom is that she loved to keep score at baseball games!
Usually at the ball park in Bay View, along Sandusky Bay in Erie County, Ohio, Mom would keep score of the atom league games. Then she would tally up all the hits, runs and RBIS, and Dad would dash the article into the night drop box at the Sandusky Register. Those young ball players surely enjoyed seeing their names in the local newspaper! I miss my mom so much, but this snapshot brings back such happy memories of Mom in her favorite activity!
