    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
