I guess it’s time we get better acquainted. I grew up in a small town near the mountains at the base of the Appalachian trail. I lived in the same house with my grandparents for 18 wonderful years. I grew up during the 60’s and 70’s and to me these were the last years of growing up with values, respect and good work ethics. I graduated from high school and quickly married my high school boyfriend. Vic was already enlisted in the Air Force and what I thought would be a quick 4 years then back home, ended up being 22 years of adventure. During those 22 years our family grew with the help of two boys and now 4 grandchildren. The stories I want to share with you are chapters of my life and how they impacted me. Some are humorous, some will bring tears, but they are stories of life. They will not be in any order of a time line but told as if sitting with your grandmother as she spilled out stories when she thinks of them. I hope these stories will touch your heart and bring back fond memories of your own and will give you the desire to share them with your loved ones.
