    The Bar In the Family Room

    My grandma and grandpa's old house in Long Island was perfect for the two of them. They moved down to Jersey, not too long ago, so I have  a lot of memories in that old house. There's one that I remember the most. We were watching the Olympics on tv in their family room, and...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
