It was the road trip I looked forward to the most every year~~my grandmother would pile we three girls into the back of her 1970s Cadillac (which felt more like a ship) and off we would go, onto the Mass Pike, into Boston to spend the day shopping at Filene's Basement. She was so short she had to look through the steering wheel and the dashboard to see the road. She could park that boat as if it were a Mini Cooper. And she got us safely there and back every time. The trunk could barely close by days end . . .
