Prize Pack: Keep Calm and Carry on Children and Snacks

Today a box came in the mail.  I won a copy of Sharon K. Mayhew’s Keep Calm and Carry On, Children and a variety of English snacks since the book is set in England.

If I didn’t know better, I’d say that Sharon knows how I spent my Sundays growing up.  First, we all went to church.  Then I, later my sister and I , went to my grandparent’s house.  First we fixed lunch.  Maybe we watched a movie.  Grandpa liked John Wayne, Laurel and Hardy and he and Grandma both watched Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.  I may have been the only grade schooler who has seen every On the Road movie that the pair made.

Then we would read.  Often I would read and the adults would nap.  But reading at Grandma’s meant reading and grazing.  Grandma grazed on peanuts, mixed nuts or bridge mix.  Occasionally there would be Pringles or Buggles or Brach’s Neapolitan Coconut candy.  That was Grandpa’s favorite.

This would defintiely have drawn a crowd.  And today is supposed to be rainy, snowy and cold.  The perfect day for reading and grazing.  Grandma and Grandpa would definitely have approved.

Thank you, Sharon!
