The 30 day song challenge.
Day 05 - a song that reminds you of someone – The Beatles - Eleanor Rigby.
I don't know why but this song reminds me of my Grandma. My first memories of her were at the old house, a two-up-two-down mill house in Manchester. It had a real fire and stone stairs, it had a yard and an outside toilet. The was a radio screwed to the window frame in the living room. She was 70 when I was born but I remember her being quite active until I was around 10. She lived with us after the old house was condemned and pulled down in 1973. It was that old house where this memory comes from, the image of a face in a jar by the door. After she died I found out that she had toured Europe with her friends in the 1920s. It was only when I was in my 20s that I found out... she was actually no relation to me.
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door.
