Bonanza, Jo Ann Beard, THE BOYS OF MY YOUTH

by Patti Abbott

106-PA-This is a story about the narrator visiting her grandparents when she is quite young–all the differences she finds from her own home. There is not enough for her to do, nothing sweet to eat, and she is forbidden to whistle inside the house. Yet it is not a harsh place and in the end, the thought of their long empty days makes her sad.
