March 5th……….”BEFORE THE DIGITAL AGE OF TODAY’S TECHNOLOGY, HOW DID YOUR FARM FAMILY STORE, ORGANIZE AND SHARE FAMILY PHOTOS”?
POEM – “Memories Sung By A Rubber Band Band” by N. Elliott Noorlun
From old family photo shoebox, Our memories sang so grand,
Their tunes were held together, When sang by a rubber band band.
Mom grouped our pics into little stacks, Each rubber band held so neat,
So when our family’d gather, We were in for nostalgia treat.
So after our supper was over, And dishes were cleared from table,
Our clan would draw near for photos so dear, For every Esther, Amanda and Mabel.
The aroma of coffee, for all to enjoy, Emanated throughout the room,
As the music of memories, began to emerge, Resulting in song’s full bloom.
The lyrics were written, for each memory’s song, On the back of each photo there,
Each rubber band stack, Never failed to lack, Sweet music for young and gray hair.
The rubber band stacks, of memory’s songs, Were passed to each person round,
And the stories that flowed, while each heart glowed, Were among the sweetest sound.
Before digital age, became all the rage, This was how our memories were shared,
By a rubber band band, that sang songs so grand, As photos showed how we all cared.
