About Ninnie

Thelma Opal Bostick is my great-grandmother, I call her Ninnie.  She was born in 1906 and has seen many things throughout her lifetime.  Ninnie went home to be with the Lord at the age of 106 years old.  She is an inspiration for me in many ways one being that she chose to go back to school after raising my grandmother and at the age of 54 graduated as a Licensed Vocational Nurse.  At around the age of 85 she took a job as a private duty nurse looking after “old people” as she would say.  She always lived a healthy lifestyle and fully believed that almost any ailment in life could be prevented or healed by natural living and remedies.

When I graduated high school she gave me two spiral notebooks, one had recipes and the second was labeled “Hints”.  This “Hints” notebook was full of handwritten tips or “hints” on everything from vitamins to how to catch a mouse. I have treasured this notebook for many years and recently came across many more additional notebooks.  The information contained in them are treasures and I am so glad for the opportunity to share them with the world.  The knowledge of times past are quickly fading and I am grateful my Ninnie wrote these so that I may pass them on to my son and hopefully grandchildren one day.
