I always looked forward to spending summers at my grandparents house in the Mountains of Pennsylvania. Those childhood summers were filled with innocence and possibilities.
Grandpa loved to build models. Cars, plans, you name it he built it. I spent hours in the attic just looking at them. He had quite a collection over the years.
In the center of the room was his most elaborate one. The whole town in miniature. Every detail perfectly placed, down to the road signs. Took him three years to complete.
Two months after we celebrated his life, I purchased the house that held so many fond memories and began to add to the collection.
