    I Miss Leaving My Windows Open At Night

    I think it is sad that my children and grandchildren can't enjoy the simple things in life that I got to enjoy. I miss being able to leave my windows open at night. If you do that now, chances are that someone will come into your house while you sleep. I loved looking at the...
