"You know, I wondered where this era had gone. After reading a sampling of some really "now" and more up-to-date stuff, I'd just about decided that a lot of the innocence from way back was completely gone. Again, refreshing in it's innocence. Cheers to your grandma - some lady. Enjoyed the visit back in time. SMCK" -- Stephanie Mckinney.
