Taking Granpa To Macys grocery Store

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 11 months ago Updated: 11 months ago

I remember when I was younger before high school age, I would got with my parents or my dad to grandpas house so that we could take him on his errands. For some reason I looked forward to going with them on these outings. I don't know if it was because I got to spend time with my dad or with my grandpa or both. I loved being with them. My grandpa always had the most random things on his list and it was very interesting to see the way my dad interacted with his dad. My grandpa would always call me "cute girl" its was something I was not used to because being raised in Haiti, we weren't used to seeing more then one generation of family around. Grocery shopping with him wasn't just a short trip, it took quit a bit of time because my grandpa knew everyone who had worked there and boy did they know him. He would be so friendly to all of them and always catch them up on the latest scout thing he was working on.

Leonard Andrew Woodward was 34 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

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.

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.
