Milk and Cookies at Grandma's by TheMan268 Milk and Cookies at Grandma's by TheMan268
Ice cold milk and homemade cookies at Grandma's house. Although my Grandma has been passed many years everything in this picture belonged to her, even the uneven table the milk and cookies are sitting on. This picture really brings back memories for me.

When I was a kid, growing up in Denver, I would sometimes get peanut butter cookies mailed to me from my grandmother in Buffalo, New York. She'd pack them up in an empty 2 pound Folgers Coffee can and send them my way. Best cookies ever, and a cherished memory I'll never forget.

Okay, this brings back a couple old memories. Of course my grandmother's pineapple cookies, but also of uneven tables. My grandparents were farmers out in Kansas and everyone had tables with leaves that didn't fit quite right. That isn't particularly memorable, but everyone covered them with a tablecloth that hid these hazards. As a child I regularly had problems when I would set my drinking glass down.

Where do you get glass milk bottles like that these days?

I think we all like this picture so much because we get to reminisce about the simpler things in life. :)

I inherited my Grandparent's house and there were two of them in the "root cellar". My Grandma had a small basement about the size of most people's bathrooms where she stored home canned food. They were way back in a corner. :)
