      Was your grandmother angry because the dog bit people or because it went to a far place?

    My dad told me a story about how my great grandfather, my grandfather and my father and how they were really poor and they kept on having problems like losing there jobs.

    • Mr. Sam
      August 16, 2010 at 2:01 pm

      How did your father overcome these problems?

        My dad didn’t really lose his job or anything, he was just really poor. When my dad was small my grandfather and grandmother used most of their money to put him in a school. My father worked hard and tried his best. After graduating school my dad was really smart and made his own company (Global Water Enineering).

          Your Dad must have worked really hard and been extremely organized in order to set up his company. Do you think he would be willing to come in and talk about it during “How we organize ourselves”?

My mum told me about it but it’s about her side of the family My great grandmother’s parents owned a book shop close to the grand palace. Then the World War 2 started and there ere bombs so it hit my great grandmothers parents shop so they passed away. Then came my grandpa ad his other 4 brothers and then my mum with her 1 brother ad other 2 sisters. Then obviously came my brother, then me and my twin. We always meet together so that kept us going as a family.

    My story is about my mom. When my mother was 15 she got a puppie from her neighbor. The Dog’s name was belle. It really loved my mother and every 5:00pm when my mom comes back from work it will come and wait for my mom at the car park. Then when my mom was marrying to my dad she left Belle at Home. Then Belle saw that my mother was driving away. It began to run on the street to go with my mother but a truck crashed it because the driver didn’t see the dog.
