Here are some memories from Julie Baker about grandma’s house:
I remember the first couple time I saw The Wizard of Oz was a grandma house. I think it was shown Thanksgiving evening. There were a bunch of cousins here and grandma and the aunts popped popcorn. Grandma brought in a BIG tub full of good salty popcorn and we each got a bowl to get some out of the tub to eat. I guess by that time she was conditioned to feeding a herd. I was soo scared of the monkey men.
Another thing grandma like to do is send Danny and I to walk up to the mailbox to get the mail and pack us a picnic lunch for along the way! Usually we ate it under the tree at the top of the hill!
I wouldn’t eat grandma hamburgers. They had a strange, ulky strong taste. I watched her make them one time and saw what she was doing to ruin her hamburgers. She was putting leaves on them. Well now when I am cooking a Christmas or Thanksgiving turkey for my family I use Bay leaves and the smell reminds me of her hamburgers!
