I will always remember the summers in Kentucky, and the grape vines and tomatoes. One of my fondest is going to the grocery store with grandma and my sister in grandpa's green Nova. We pulled from a stop sign and the front seat slid all the way back as we started to move. Grandma stopped the car and just sat for a second, then laughed harder than I think I had ever seen her laugh before.
