Dear Grandmom

This past week I helped my Mom by going through some old boxes of stuff.  I came across this letter and thought that I would share it with you.  It was a letter that I wrote to my Grandmom - "Gran" as I called her.

Dear Grandmom   2/23/76

Hi how are you doing? This is a lettle asking you some queshtons.  A lot of them. I sher do love you you no that?  Can you fish and get a lot of them? I can! 

I was sick on Fed. 23, 1976 it was not fun this is the day I rote this letter to you.   

I Love you I Love you I Love you I Love you I no I said that four times I jost Love you.

Here is a story a made up.  A mouse was making a mud pie in the annual slowpoke race when he was picked up by an elephant in a yellow canoe who gave him a lift to a haunted house where a goat was chewing bubble gum.

Love casey

Ok, it was the 70's....  I went by the name "Casey" (after my step-father decided that I should be named after him.)   I was seven years old at the time.  Now what do you do when you come across something like this?  It wouldn't mean a thing to anyone, but me.  But, I just can't seem to throw it away just yet.  Maybe I will save it and let my kids decide when they have to help me clean out all of my clutter that I have been collecting over the years.   Good idea!

  1. You wrote that the day before your Gram turned 61yrs. You know she loved you, she loved you, she loved you, she loved you! She just loved you.
    Great idea, to save it for your kids to deal with...... ;~b
    Thanks for all of your help with my "clutter". Where DOES that STUFF come from...? You've made it possible for me to get back to quilting/beading/cross stitch/crochet/and all the other whims that "materialize". We've been blessed with great-great-great grandmothers that had the gift of creativity, and love. Looks like we might have a clue re. the origination of that "clutter". How was that for 1:1 quality time? I love you! I love you! I love you! No way to say thank you enough.......... a lot of treasures found.....
