A Broken Arm and a Loving Grandma

Contributor: BarbaraLeishman Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

During one summer, I made my way to Preston a week or two before my family. My parents thought it would be fun to spend some more time with Grandma and Grandpa. I had a blast and loved (almost) every minute of it. Toward the end of that week, I jumped off a moving trailer and injured my wrist. I didn't tell anyone about it, until Grandma noticed me wincing in pain, and noticed that I wasn't using that arm at all. Concerned, she called my parents and they suggested I go get it checked out. As suspected, my wrist was broken and quickly set in a cast. Of course that meant that my activities would be limited, and it meant that I would have to spend more 'clean' time in the house. As we were leaving the doctor, I remember Grandma taking me to Arctic Circle for lunch. She knew just what I needed to feel better. I love and miss this great woman!!

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.

Laurene Griffeth (Bowden) was 45 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
