Jimmy, congrats on your poem, Grandmomma, being featured this week on the home of Poetry Soup...What a nostalgic write...So she'd take u out for a movie and a toy? That's a grandma that loves to spend time with her grandson...I too had a very special grandma and that is what drew me to your poem. It helped me draw upon my own personal memories.....blessings, gwendolen
