Stopped in Salem, MO to drop off some materials at the high school. Decided to stop by grandmas grave to put some flowers and then I started strolling down memory lane. Remembering my summers, weekends and anytime mom and dad let me see grandma and grandpa. From games every night with grandma while watching the grand ole Opry, wrestling or westerns to holding a duck right after it was born to remembering grandpa bringing in a goat to bottle feed one night because the mom had died to swimming in the current river and bat-mitten and baseball games with grandma, my aunts and great aunts. Even grandpa teaching me to drive on the roads to the river. And remembering great uncle David showing me how watermelon should have salt on it and how to play dominoes. Also being known as Little Allie because my grandma was Allie too. Even going to Walmart and my grandma seemed to know everyone but that was not the case today when I went in....I went as far as to travel to Montauk to feed the trout and remember the fun family reunions we had there. With grandpa now living in Mt. Vernon, it has been and will be a while before I’m back here. But it sure was nice. I miss grandma so much but her and grandpa gave childhood Memories I won’t forget.
