Magical Moment 628, "Home is Where the Bread is"


One of the best things about visiting home, is spending time with not only the people that you feel most comfortable around, but at the places you feel most comfortable in. One of those places is my Grandma's house. She's lived there with my Grandpa since I was born, and I myself spent 6 years of my life calling that house, "home."

If you asked any of my siblings or cousins, they would tell you that one of the staple memories of our childhood, are the squirrels. They've been lovingly hand-fed for decades by my grandparents. I remember my Grandpa even naming some of them... Bertha and Clyde. Well, Bertha and Clyde have gone on to produce many generations since I was 4, but they all still know right where to get their daily meal. From my Grandma's own hand. When I went "home" last month, it was good to see that some things never change.

With me, this guy was kind of tentative. But when it's just my Grandma, she has to block the doorway with her body to keep them from coming inside!

The last photo is just too cute. I loved hearing your memories of your childhood at Grandma's house. She sounds like a neat lady.

That is so funny. I guess these are spoiled rotten squirrels. Lovely memories for you all; your Grandparents are special people.

That's great! My Aunt's home is such a welcomed place for me when I'm back home!

That last image is adorable. It looks like he's eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. . or something.

Frank feeds his squirrelly friends also.. peanuts though. They're spoiled rotten!

Lovely nostalgic post, Elizabeth. I missed growing up with grandparents when we emigrated to Canada from the Netherlands.

I hope you'll be back here soon.
