My grandparents homes

Contributor: Dan Clark Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

I was very fortunate as a child to be able to go and visit both of my grandparents. Grandpa Albert and grandma Jessie lived in Payette, Idaho. Grandma Larue and grandpa Haws lived in Salt Lake. My grandpa Rowley passed away when my father was just a-year-old, so the only grandpa on his side I knew was grandpa Haws. We would go to Idaho quite often to visit grandma and grandpa Bahr. Their home was not big, but there was always a feeling of love and acceptance there. One thing that really surprised me as a child was that grandma and grandpa did not sleep together, they slept in separate beds. I usually always got to sleep with my grandma in her bed when we visited. One story I remember about my grandma Bahr was one day we were visiting and there were quite a few grandchildren there. We were running in and out of the kitchen while my grandma was trying to cook. She got mad at us and chased us all out with her broom and told us not to come back until dinner was ready. I love going to grandma's house. It also meant that I would see my cousins. We liked the barn and climbing on the hay. We also helped in the garden and rode in the back of grandpa's red pick up. I got to see my Grandma Rowley Haws quite often. I loved going to her house and staying overnight. Grandma taught me how to cook and clean. We would take popsicle sticks and little pieces of cloth and make dolls. We then would take a box and make a doll house out of it. I spent many many days and nights with my grandma . One thing I noticed about my grandma Rowley Haws was that her and grandpa had separate bedrooms. Grandpa told me that it was because grandma snored. I think it was the opposite, I heard grandpa a lot. I loved visiting both of my grandparents. There was always a feeling of love and acceptance when I visited. I knew that I was special to them. I hope to be a grandma like my grandmas were to me.

My grandparents

As I was growing up I was very fortunate to know and associate with my grandparents. I guess what I really should say is that I associated with grandma and grandpa Bahr and grandma Rowley Haws, along with my step grandpa Haws. My father's father, William Parley Rowley Junior, passed away when my father was very young. My grandmother Rowley married Erastus Snow Haws after his death. This was the step grandfather that I knew. Albert Andrew Bahr was my mother's father. He was quite a character. Grandpa lived to well over 90 years of age. Even in his 90s he would run in and play volleyball and baseball with the grandkids. Grandpa seemed to always be laughing, smiling, and being a big tease. Grandpa loved to farm. He had a large garden of just about anything imaginable that could grow. We could go out into his garden even at Christmas time and find carrots potatoes and other items that he had buried under the hay. Grandpa had a red pick up truck that was the pride of all of us. We loved to ride in grandpas's pick up. We never rode in the cab, we rode in the back. We always loved to go to grandpa's house. Grandma Jessie Edith Butt, was also very special. I am named after her middle name Edith. I cherish this, and hope to be able to live up to her expectations. Grandma always knew what we were doing. She loved to know that I played the violin. Every time I saw her she would ask me how I was doing on my violin. Grandma loved to sing, and had a beautiful voice. I attribute my love to music from my grandmother. Grandma Bahr passed away on October 14, 1975. I know this date because that was when my oldest son Francis was born. My parents had been at grandma's house, and just left to head towards their house. We caught them at Mountain home, grandpa always stopped there, and told them Francis had been born. They turned around and went back to Payette. It was about 1:30 in the morning. My father told grandma that I had just had my baby. Grandma smiled a great big smile, just as if this was what she was waiting for, and then passed away. My grandmother was very special to me and I love her dearly. Grandpa William Parley Rowley Junior passed away when my father was a very young boy. My grandmother married Erastus Snow Haws. This wonderful person raised my father and was the grandpa that I knew. Grandpa Haws could be rough at times, but I knew that he cared for me. Grandpa had a quiet smile and a warm hug. He was respected by many. Grandpa took care of my grandmother for many years as she struggled with diabetes. He was so gentle and kind to her. My grandfather was a very hard worker. He had a beautiful yard. I learned how to unconditionally love from him. He was a giant of a man. Grandma LaRue Edwards Rowley Haws, Was my father's mother. She was extremely special to me as I was growing up. I loved my grandmother very much. I knew that she loved me as well. Many times the other grandchildren would say that I was grandma's favorite granddaughter, and they were probably right. I had a very special bond with my grandmother. I spent many nights and days at her home especially during the summer. My grandmother taught me many things. She taught me to cook, clean, how to make ragdoll's, and how to treat people kindly. Grandma always had a huge Easter egg hunt for us on Easter Sunday. Even though she had very little money she always remembered our birthdays and Christmas. My grandmother passed away when I was a teenager. This was very hard on me, and I cried a lot. I still miss my grandmother now. I know, though, that the veil is thin, because my grandmother has visited me,especially in times of need. I cannot wait until the day that I can run into her arms and embrace her once again. I was honored to spend many hours and days with my grandparents. I hope to be as good of a grandmother to my grandchildren as my grandparents were to me.

The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
