Wishes grandchildren had grapevine swing

Sandy Coomer writes:
Grapevines make the greatest swings. I remember one we all (The Bell Children) used to swing on many years ago. It swung off a bank. I even remember the last time it was used. It hung from a tree that stood in the path to our spring where we carried our drinking water. I swung and it broke loose from the top of a very tall tree and slammed my little sister on the top of the head. But we had many great years of swinging before it came down. I wish my grandchildren had one around to swing on today. Kids today don't know the fun they miss like we used to have. -Sandy Coomer
