Kitchen Floor

This avocado-green linoleum floor was glued to this house in 1960.
I wonder how many children have played on it since then.
While mama cooked dinner, or daddy made pancakes...
How many snippets of conversation does this floor remember?
"...I think I'm 6 weeks late."
"I was laid-off at work today."
"Mama, I don't feel goo...blaaaaargh $#*yrh##!!!"

p.s... this is not one of MY varmints. We're not quite as color coordinated.
But we go back a loooong way.... back to when she was measured in pixels :-)
