It affected me


Our fourth of July picnic in our front yard was attended by over one hundred relatives, and friends. When my grandmother, who had memory problems, walked from her yard to join the party she was wearing some sort of purple fish net shirt with nothing beneath it. Not even a bra. She was eighty-five, and the party was stunned, watching my mother try to cover her, and escort her back to her home. There was lots of alcohol consumed at this party so most people quickly forgot. I can still picture her walking happily into our party ,forty years ago.
