THINGS THAT REMIND ME OF GRANDMA

  1. Yellow apples
    She always had yellow apples in the kitchen.
  2. Hyatt Hotel
    She worked many years for Hyatt in Chicago.
  3. Black bobby pins
    Black bobby pins in her small little hair bun.
  4. CTA tokens
    I would often ride the bus with my grandma and she would let me put the bus fare in the machine.
  5. Barefoot wine
    It was funny when she mentioned to me about 3 years ago that she had tried a wine that she liked, "el de la patita" (the one with the foot).
