I also wanted to share some memories of Grandma Holton. We called her our "Little Grandma" and our other grandmother was, of course, called our "Big Grandma." She was by no means BIG, but anyone would look big next to Grandma Holton, who probably only weighed about eighty pounds, was so dainty and feminine, so fragile and diminutive - and utterly wonderful. She always wore a dress or skirt, often with a lace collar, always with a necklace and earrings. I am sure she never wore slacks. And most of all I remember she always wore little dainty shoes with heels. Some were what I call sling back shoes, some had an open toe - but always little feminine heels. One year Mom and Dad took her to the Indianapolis 500 so she could see the BIG RACE. Mom just loved to go to that race and wanted to share it with her mother when she was visiting us. Grandma wore her dress and heels!!!!! Imagine! She was a trooper!
I will close with a photo of some of my favorite things found on my dresser. They remind me of my oh-so-feminine and dainty "Little Grandma."
