My Grandma and Grandpa did not have to strive to do that, it came naturally. Around the corner from my house, was theirs. An active striving farm, stops in from friends or family, an evening of playing the accordion with his brother Martin so the streets surrounding could here the music.

There were long hot hours doing hay and Gram making her special drink from 5 Alive-tons of sugar! LOVED it!! That to was a family affair no mater what age-just ask me who broke her arm trying to be independent and get down from hay truck by herself! They always made me feel like that special princess granddaughter. If I wanted something they would refuse, but eventually entertain me. Of course in the end, Gram would say we can get that "somewhere else cheaper"! I actually never got most of whatever it was I wanted, but it was inspiration that they would have!
I can't possibly name all the special moments and times. There's not enough ink in this world. For some reason she and I always recounted her bringing me from her house to my dads to get the bus in her green Pontiac.
I would never get into passenger side, always had to jump over her from drivers side. After a few weeks, the bus driver made a comment that "you must really love your Gramma! Like my Uncle Staush said, she could bake and cook on a wood stove like no body else! Everyone who knows her can agree- you don't leave without "trying" something. MY Gramma was gentle, caring, giggly, smart, coy, cautious, stubborn and loved the color of sky blue when we colored.
Love you GRAM! Message from Lisa. Even though you were my mother n law I always referred to you as "Grandma" you taught me the importance of looking for a bargain and cutting coupons You accepted Ashley as your own there never was a question You were always loved and respected May you find comfort and happiness being with Grandpa, Blondie, Eddie, and your grandson Thank you for everything. Expression of Sympathy. Order your own sympathy flowers. We love you Ashley, Joey, and Lisa. Message from Staush and Rob. Heaven is a good place to be in when your cycle is complete.
God gives us each a gift of life To cherish from our birth He gives us friends and those we love To share our days on Earth. He watches us with loving care And takes us by the hand. But the reply from the experts was invariably brisk, along the lines advocated by 'sex philosopher' Clara Burgess, who recommended the bachelor girl to 'keep sex in a strong-box, with other interests sitting on the lid to hold it tight'.

A complete edition of John James Audubon's world famous The Birds of America, bound in linen and beautifully presented in a special slipcase. Terms and Conditions. Style Book. Weather Forecast. She saw Grace Barrymore, the short blonde bob a perfect frame for the still beautiful face, who although looking younger, Jessie knew that like her own mother, was fifty-five. The curious and interested gaze regarded her firmly, making her feel shy.
Not much flew past that powerful blue scrutiny. The girl was casually dressed in a pair of jeans and silk blouse, and her expert eye told her those were designer labels. She also had a pair of Nine West shoes on, a matching belt, and a pretty decent handbag. None of the items were new, so she had not rushed off to buy them to impress. Good, she might have some means and taste. Tea was served in the Louis XIV salon and Jessie struggled to keep her gaze on the two older women, simply wanting to look at and absorb everything.
It was a gorgeous room; polychrome commodes, bureaux, gilded chairs, mirrors… No, she could barely focus on Grace Barrymore, who was enchanting, entertaining, and an absolute gem as a hostess and enjoying the company of another woman who was not Monica.
Now there was an extremely critical individual. From the little Jessie had gleaned and John harped on, Monica sounded exactly like Margaret, who had been another strange character. Naturally, it was Monica who asked what her father did. She was silent for a second and then told her that he was in plastics. Which was not a lie; Taylor had recently acquired Amalgamated Plastics in Durban. Mark trudged in, draped himself over a velvet sofa, started on some interior decor conversation, and asked if she would be willing to do his penthouse in New York.
No one had to tell her interior design had not yet entered his mind; the blue eyes were hard to read and yet, it was all so easy to understand. I made a couple of them.
I was happy with those! Then I get a call from Lin Oliver. When I heard her message telling me the good news, I squealed. And I celebrated! The Golden Kite! Then a couple weeks later, the night before the ALA announcements, I got another call!

I honestly wasn't really thinking about the possibility of an ALA award. I had my Golden Kite! I was still sailing on that goodness. The Schneider Family committee was calling to let me know that The Remember Balloons had been selected as an honor book. Having this recognition for The Remember Balloons is pretty incredible. And above all, it means that more people who need the book will have a chance to read it. We know that this book was inspired by and dedicated to your grandfather, but what is the story behind the story?

My paternal grandfather has Alzheimer's. He now lives in a retirement home with my grandmother not too far from where my parents live in Kansas. As my children and I were visiting him a few summers ago, I considered the idea of writing a children's book about Alzheimer's. What began as a straight-forward story about a boy and his grandfather grew into a metaphorical story about balloons. And all in one afternoon.
