** Whenever we heard the fire engine sirens going, Grandpa and us grandkids would jump in the car and try to find where they were going.
** Grandma and I would cut out people (whole ones of course) from the Sears catalog and glue them to cardboard. I’d name them and have whole families. Then I’d play with them.
** For a special treat Grandpa would take us all in the car to go watch the planes coming and going from O’Hare airport.
** Grandma taught me how to sew both by hand and with a sewing machine. We made lots of Barbie clothes and darned lots of socks.
** Whenever I spent Saturday night with them, Grandma and I would make a special Sunday breakfast for Grandpa of scrambled eggs, bacon and Sara Lee coffeecake.
