Aunt Lelia's Legacy

Well...Where to begin? Usually the beginning works best. My mother was raised by an amazing Victorian woman, my Aunt Lelia. She was 67 when my mom,4, and uncle,3, came to live with her and 70 when she took over their care completely without help. Probably my earliest memories involve some form of the phrase "Aunt Lelia used to say..." (My personal favorite? "What would you like me to do? Stand on my head and spit nickels?" More on that later...) Anyway, I trace my own love of quotes to that sweet (and tough) woman. I collect them. I borrow them.I make them up.Thus...Aunt Lelia's Legacy. We'll give it a whirl anyway...
