Ritz Crackers and Cheating at Scrabble!!

After my mom passed away, we inherited her camper van for the summer! We’re going to head out soon so I decided I should go check out the camper for supplies and clean out things we don’t / or won’t need.

I proceed to go thru different drawers and cupboards and hidey holes!  Duct tape, screws, nail file, thread, string, WD40 (to name a few) and they can all stay because who knows when you might need these items!

Another cupboard door opens:


haha – TEE HEE – Roll on floor laughing


We grew up on these.  They were a staple of all our car trips.  A box of Ritz and we could travel anywhere, anytime, for miles and miles and miles.  Everything was better with a Ritz!  Here, have a Ritz!!  Ritz with cold wieners.. ( I know, but we survived )..

I continue my search thru the remaining drawers.  Found the closet, the dishes, the little vacuum, yup, all is well..


What’s this?

Na, it can’t be.. Really?

Yes, yes it is


It’s Mom’s Scrabble Cheat Sheet!  You know the one with all the words that you’ve never heard of, won’t remember, and have no chance of ever spelling them?

There it is!  It exists!!

Mom’s friend mentioned that Mom was a vicious Scrabble Player and that she was very hard to beat – now we know WHY..

I know that when I go camping this weekend that Mom’s presence will be felt all around these drawers, shelves and walls that she so loved.
