Lea Donovan Watson To the many toddlers who appeared in his long life who were learning about "mine", he'd gently squeeze their knees with affection and say; "Those are Grampy's knees." He delighted in the squeals of laughter, protest, exclamations, and banter as to who owned those knees.

James G. Watson ‎'Hey Eunice, bring out some more hot bread!' After hiking the Webster Cliff Trail in Crawford Notch, Grampy and Meme took about 20 of us out to eat at an Italian restuarant for Xander's brithday. One waitress at our table yelled to the other waitress in the kitchen about getting us more bread. Grampy thought this was hilarious. This became a familiar line whenever we got together for dinner - at our hosue or Centre Farm.

Lea Donovan Watson About 5 years ago, I was talking with my dad about death. I said; "Well, dad, being a doctor, you must have witnessed a lot of people dying." Dad answered; "Yes, I did...... and no one ever came back and complained about it."

Lea Donovan Watson ‎"I see a Christmas tree, ha ha. Ha ha." Dad promted us to look for Christmas lights while driving in the Dodge stationwagon. I am sure it was a distraction technique to stop some baby from crying or two kids from poking each other. Jim and I used it with our kids and I share it with families in Auditory-Verbal Therapy. It works!

Lea Donovan Watson Jim & I were new parents. Keara was 9 months old. She kept climbing out of her crib and falling on the floor. We'd put her back in her crib and tell her not to do that. We tried this and that. Nothing worked. Finally out of desperation, I called Meme & Grampy for advice. Grampy said; "There is only one solution; you and Jim get in the crib and let Keara have the house."
