    Once Upon a Time

    I haven't been inside in about 20 years... left the day after my grandfathers funeral and it was sold so fast that all I can do is look from the street when we pass by. It was an old bungalow style house, small with only two bedrooms and one bath. The floor was a brown patterned...

    I Do Too!

    My father's mother lived right next door to me.  As a young boy, it was a fun way to get out from under my mother's thumb for a few hours.

    My grandparents lived in a large Victorian house on the corner of two streets downtown. I loved to visit because I was very close to my grandmother. Now that I'm an adult, I realize it's because we are so much alike, and I'm proud of that. Her house always smelled so great...

    Grandparent's House

      While she lived there for only about three more years after my grandfather died, I guess I always thought of it more as my grandmother's house.  He had it custom built and had the contractor put in many of the touches that she had long wanted - the built-in...

    The Heart Of My Childhood

    Everything that was good about my formative years revolved around my Grandma's house.  I have so many happy memories at her home...and now that she is gone...there is a large chunk of the light in my life that has forever gone black.

    Every Week

    I walk by it whenever I am going to get groceries remembering everything that was there. I know the house was remodeled and wonder what it looks like these days with the people living there now.
