Everyone, I am writing this at the request of my mother so that it can be added to a collection of memories people have about Vermont
I have been coming to Vermont since I can remember when I was younger. My favorite time of year was summer because we always spent at least two weeks in the summertime visiting with my grandfather. I would also swim and eat ice cream, as well as listen to a bunch of my grandpa’s old war stories.
I also vividly remember taking my best friend Christoph here and spending endless hours in a tent in a garage. During that time, he and I had an idea for a treehouse that we could both hang out in at various times. This idea was the original inspiration for the separate space that I am in right now. I told my mom about the idea of a treehouse here, and I showed her a plan that Christoph and I had drawn up, and she thought it was a decent idea. It took a very long time. It was complete, but eventually, the garage was converted into a separate living space for me to spend my time in. The only thing I was disappointed is that when I was younger. There were not too many kids my age to play with, and I am mildly jealous of my brother because he was always more social than I was, so he has a lot more people that he knows down here, but I have come to realize that a good friend is hard to find them whenever and wherever you can.
Another memory I have in Vermont is of a place called Sam’s. My parents and I discovered this place when I was 11 or 12 years old, and it had some of the best food I have ever eaten. They made hamburgers from scratch, as close as someone could get without it being homemade. I also like the quantities of food you would have to bring homemade, but I think they made the best was the fries. I was unfortunate when I learned that Sam’s closed. If those individuals open a restaurant like Sam’s in the future, do not hesitate to let me know because I will come to that location as fast as somebody can drive me.
Vermont me is a state that feels like a small town, or at least it does to me, and I hope that no matter what changes are in store for Vermont, that aspect of the state never changes
