52 questions in 52 weeks- week 13

Did your grandparents live close by? If so, describe how they were involved in
your life. If they lived far away share some memories of visiting them or of them
traveling to visit you.

Both sets of my grandparents lived in the same town as I did. We would stop by Grandma Alice's almost daily after school to check on her. As she aged, she was very frightened by storms and many times insisted she needed to come stay at our house. I think she drove my Mom a little crazy at how demanding she could be. I'm not sure how she dealt with that and worked. I don't remember that part.

We would go see my other grandparents fairly often on Sunday. If I was lucky, Grandma would have Bugles or RC Cola. Oh, I still love those. I was not a fan of her ice milk. I never understood why she didn't just get ice cream. OH... and the metal ice cube trays that were almost impossible to ever use. Ha!

I ran across this challenge about a year ago and thought it was a marvelous idea...

The whole idea is to tell your own story by answering one question a week. People that love ancestry love finding diaries, journals, and letters, because they tell about everyday life. Not just the big stuff, but the every day little stuff.
