Storytelling runs in this grandmother’s family:
Gail G., of New York, is the winner of this week’s best Grandparent’s Day story. Her entry, appropriately titled “My Brain,” is about how her 9-year old grandson came to visit and talked to her non-stop, telling his grandmother everything he could—his life story, if you will. And when he was done, his brain—well, we don’t want to spoil it for you. Besides, her words are better than ours. Please click here to read Gail’s story to see for yourself.
For sharing her wonderful and whimsical story with us, Gail wins a Motorola HZ800 Bluetooth® Headset (Elite Series), donated by Motorola Mobility. Please join us in congratulating Gail on not just a story well told but on having a grandson who, it seems, is also quite the storyteller.

My grandmother has been gone for many years and I am a grandmother myself but I remember when I was 10 she came to visit us and she taught me embroidery stitches. She then took me to visit her friend. The bus ride was about an hour. The visit lasted forever but I brought my embroidery with me and I got a lot done on that dresser scarf. I had that thing far into my adulthood and then it fell apart. We did so much together that I have tried to continue the practice with my own granddaughter. With some success she likes to paint and not sew. But I love her anyway.
