Message of the Day – A Decal

Today’s “Message of the Day” is a rear window decal.

It is a representation of Durer’s Praying Hands etching.

I first saw them in my grandmother Addie Skinner’s home in Crumpton, Maryland.

She had what I remember as a glass representation.

I last saw them on her coffee table in a senior citizens housing complex in Sudlersville, MD, when I interviewed her.

She was 95 years old.

After her husband Roy died, I noticed that her return address appeared as “Addie Watling-Skinner.” It had never been hyphenated before.

When she died I convinced the family that her name should be hyphenated on her tomb stone.

So, when you see the hyphen in the little cemetery in Crumpton, Maryland, and wonder why, that’s the reason.
