About Grandparents house from last night

I consider my self real lucky that I live in my Grandparents old home. My dads family moved here in 1932. Ever since that time there has been a decendant of theirs in the local school district. Granddad died in 1966 but somedays when out back I swear I can still smell the cigars he would sit on the back porch and smoke. My grandparent place on my mother side of the family is not owned by family but the brother whoe own it let me go walikg around there just about anytime I want. If I got started on memories of my grandparents I don't think even this computor would be big enough. thanks Kelly for bringing the subject up.

Your welcome, always love to hear about the past, and the life people lived, such nice warm fuzzy memories keep our spirits burning I think.

Yes, I know what you mean Sid. I am more of a
spiritual type person. When I was a kid, I could
walk around the 420 acre family farm. I would
often sense something beautiful or deep emotion/connection at certain areas...
What I found out growing up and then well, into
my 40's--My great-great grandfather had bought
the place, was married 50 years, raised a bunch
of kids in the old house, probably died there,
built or had built the buildings, etc. Then
eventually my grandmother lived there 56 years,
my dad's been there 76 years, my brother close
to 50, (if you can count his teenage years--I
thought he was never home, ha, ha!)
So, the last time I had walked the place, it
hit me, omg! I see all the things he/they saw
and am probably feeling the same emotions. Aw,
the beauty and serenity of the place!
I see it as a spiritual place where others have
gone before me, and like you can feel some sort
of presence.

Best memories were at my Grandparents. Get there, stop in and say hello and grab the fishing pole and head to the crick. Do miss it very much. Drive by when I go back and see the rest of the family.
Sid, did you get my response to you about the tree roots?

Yes I did. I typed in a reply but for some reason it did not post. Could be cause I didn't finish it or something. Kinda like the English Ivy idea. Is it fairly easy to start? Look for message in Email. Sid
