“Trugars” are stories that are true. My great-grandmother, fondly remembered as “Big Mommy,” coined the phrase as she spun her tales of yesteryear to my mother’s generation. I heard her stories, er, trugars, too, and now I want to pass them on to my children. In the meantime, I’m also creating my own trugars to tell someday.
“My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”
~ Psalm 46:1
Some time ago, I read about an author writing his book online. I’m not exactly sure how he accomplished that, but I plan to embark on a similar scheme, albeit in my own fashion. You see, my great-grandmother completed the story of her life here on earth November 25, and the time has come for me to complete the book version of that story.
