What a story..thank you for sharing! I am honored, especially coming from you (my survival hero!..)!
I remember when we moved my grandmother to a house closer to my parent's, and when we got to the part where my mom said they would have to throw out all of her canned goods (some were 20+ years old ) she had tears in her eyes. I said we should just let her keep them, but monitor her eating habits once in the new house. "I feel ya', grandma!"
I just think she made a big impression on me even when little. I would go into her "special room" full of cans and look at them, try to read the labels and just think it was the berries to have so much food! Not like I was starving or anything, just enthralled. Now my siblings snocker at my habits and call me "grandma J". I don't care, I am proud of it!
