Chapter 1: Grandma’s Grand Adventure with Grandkids

When Lily Page, who is now twelve, was just a little squirt, she said “Meema, you are always going to neat places. So, when are you going to take me?” I asked her where she wanted to go and without hesitation she replied “Paris, France”! My grandson, Forrest, nine, said he wanted to see windmills in Holland. Their mother, my lovely daughter, Amy, just wanted to go to make sure her children fared well and also to have fun. And thank God she came along - for many reasons which I will explain. First though, I must say, she is a delight to travel with - easy going and helpful to her Mama as well as her children. I am happy and proud to say that both children were amazingly always well-behaved, engaged in whatever we were doing, never bored or cross and were happy to be there with each other and with us. Yes, we let them use their iPhone or iPad for a little while in the evenings, but they didn’t even miss them during the days.

(A Funny Story) Our Grandfather rode on a long train trip from the Arkansas Delta to New England in order to secure an important cotton mill account to get his cotton business started. On his first encounter the Buyer told him that "we are not interested in doing business with you at this time". The next morning that same Buyer saw our grandfather in the same seat in the office and asked him why he was still here. Our Grandfather replied, "You told me yesterday that you were not interested in doing business with me at this time. So, I wondered if today would be a better time." That response so impressed the Buyer that our Grandfather got the account.

To lie in the fields of gold
Is something of a grand illusion
Yes to touch just a piece of that
And knowing it is no delusion
And having that wonderful thought

And that unmistakable feeling of contentment
Of living in that state of calm
