Granny and Grandaddy

Yesterday was a very long day in our car, and by the time I was settled on the computer, I found out I was too tired to do much of anything. I have gotten some good work done today, and for that I am grateful.


Speaking of being grateful, we are exactly eight days away from Thanksgiving. And somehow this time of year makes me think of family. Both my Dad’s parents died in 2008. Grandaddy had cancer for years, and we all thought we would have to help Granny through losing him. To our surprise, she got sick and died before Grandaddy did. It was crazy and sad at once.


Granny had two boys, Dad and my Uncle John. Uncle John always lived in town they grew up in. But we moved around a lot. Granny loved having us come for visits. And oh, she loved to cook and make sure everyone ate their fill. Granny and Grandaddy had a pool, and sometimes we would stay there without my parents for a week during the summer.


I think I need to go for now.
