Early memory mansard
Those were fun times for me. Holidays at their house was all about beer, white tableclothes, Blue Nun wine and laughter. It was always a fun, loud time at my grandparents. But looking back I realized now it was a very hard time for my grandparents. My grandfather was a marketing exec for Falstaff beer and lost his job around 1975 when operations collapsed.

Not long thereafter my grandfather was diagnosed with bone cancer and died. Very sad.
