|My cousin Sam is remodeling Grandma's old house. It was an ugly farm house that was brown and got aluminum siding put on it. The house was white. It is two stories and was anything but fancy. Now, that it is being remodeled, some of the rooms look like a house out of Country Living. I don't know how my grandparents would feel about it if they were still alive. Grandma never got a nicer house while she was alive but she and Grandpa always bought new cars and Grandma loved buying shoes and purses. I am sure Grandma is smiling from Heaven. She had a happy life with Grandpa. At least her house wasn't torn down. It lives again.
Sam found my Nancy Drew and Cherry Ames books that I left upstairs at Grandma's house. . Nancy solved over a 100 mysteries, never had a Law Degree and she stayed 18? I wish I was still 18 and never aged. I loved reading Nancy Drew. Teen-age girls admire her. She solved crimes and yet her books were entertaining and the author Carolyn Keene wrote on a level we can relate to. I bought and read every Nancy Drew book every published until I was 20 something. I started reading them when I was 10 years old. Nancy Drew will always be a favorite of teen-aged girls. Nancy will solve cases and never age. Amazing!
Cherry Ames. She was a Nurse. Cherry Ames was an Army Nurse, hospital Nurse, Candy Stripper and was a Nurse of all trades. She was in every field of nursing. I loved reading Cherry Ames nursing adventures. I can relate to her. I work in nursing and I have taken care of the elderly, mentally retarded and mentally ill. I have adventures, too in nursing. Cherry Ames is like a part of me. I never knew that when I read her books that I would someday be in nursing. I love writing best but I can't make a living at it but seeing my old Cherry Ames books gave me a sense of pride about nursing. It isn't a glamorous job but it is a worth while one and I should be happy to be part of it. As for being a writer, it is an added bonus. Maybe I can have it all!
