(HOME PAGE) Welcome to "Way Back Then"

Welcome to "Way Back Then" a collection of Poems, Narratives and Stories written by my grandmother when she was 60 years old. I had these hosted on my personal WEB site, but started thinking, what happens when I die? No one will keep my web site up. So I decided to move to Bolgger. I hope these writings by my Grandmother will live on for many years to come.  I hope those of you that find her stories here enjoy her memories of New England life "Way Back Then".

"Known to me as Nana, my mothers mother. A woman I loved to sit and talk with."
