What a delightful story! I, too have an autistic grandson (brought up by his loving parents)who is also such a joy in his quirky way. Your love shone through this piece.
This is a delight to read. What a charming young man your grandson is, if this is a personal account. We can learn so much from people with Autism. Swap the ties for feathers and you've described my son. His feather collection of 38 years took over our house. When he moved into supported living and less space, he sacrificed most of his books and DVD's to make room for the many boxes.

An interesting and well written read.
So sweet. You must make a blanket for him, sewing his absolute favorites together - but only if he agrees!
Congrats! God Bless~
Congratulations Sharon. I'm pleased to see this entry placed.
Congratulations on your 2nd place win!
Congrats on winning second place, and on writing such a heart-felt piece. You zeroed in on us older folk's greatest joy: Grand-kids. I think you hit the bulls eye.
Congratulations on ranking 19th overall! (The top 40 rankings overall can be found in the message boards)
