"Grandma, Grandma, tell us a story!" Four darling children sat by my feet, looking up at me expectantly.
Suddenly, we were interrupted clapping. "Terrific,” the director said, stepping up the stage from the aisle(过道). "Except, could you kids face the audience a bit more?"
The kids shifted to face the empty seats, which would be filled in a few days for the church play.
"Perfect,” the director said. "Now, Grandma, read to your grandchildren." A pang of sadness hit me. If only I could read to my real grandchild!
I had a granddaughter, but I"d never met her. Sixteen years earlier my son was involved in a relationship that ended badly. But out of it came a blessing: a baby girl named Lena. I hoped to be a grandmother to her-but shortly after the birth, the mother moved without any address left. Over the years, I asked around town to try and find my son"s ex-wife(前妻), but it seemed that she didn"t want to be found.
I"d just joined this new church a week earlier, and was at once offered the part of Grandma in the play. At least now I could pretend to be a grandma. The rehearsals went well and finally the day of the show arrived. The performance was great. "You all looked so natural up there,” one of my friends said.
Afterward, we went to the church basement for refreshments(茶点). I walked over to one of the girls in the play, Rehearsals had been such a whirlwind(一片忙乱) that we never really got to talk. "How"s my granddaughter?" I joked.
"Fine!" she answered. Just then, someone else walked up and asked the girl her name.
I wasn"t sure I heard the girl"s answer correctly. But it made me ask her another question. "What"s your mother"s name?"
She told me, I was still in shock. "And what"s your father"s name?" I asked. She told me. It was my son.

San Francisco has its cable cars. Seattle has its Space Needle. And, Longview has its squirrel bridge. The bridge, which has attracted international attention, is now a local landmark.
The Nutty Narrows Bridge was built in 1963 by a local builder, Amos Peters, to give squirrels a wayto cross the busy road without getting flattened by passing cars.
The original bridge was built over Olympia Way on the west edge of the library grounds. Before thebridge was built, squirrels had to avoid traffic to and from the Park Plaza office building where office staff put out a nutty feast for the squirrels. Many times, Peters and others who worked in and near Park Plaza witnessed squirrels being run over.
One day Peters found a dead squirrel with a nut still in its mouth, and that day"s coffee break discussion turned into squirrel safety. The group of businessmen cooked up the squirrel bridge idea and formed a committee to ask the blessing of the City Council (市政会).The Council approved, and Councilwoman Bess LaRiviere named the bridge "Nutty Narrows."
After architects designed the bridge, Amos Peters and Bill Hutch started construction. They built the 60-foot bridge from aluminum and lengths of fire hose (消防水带). It cost 1,000. It didn"t take long before reports of squirrels using the bridge started. Squirrels were even seen guidingtheir young and teaching them the ropes. The story was picked up by the media, and Nutty Narrows became known in newspapers all over the world.
In 1983, after 20 years of use, Peters took down the worn-out bridge. Repairs were made and crosspieces were replaced. The faded sign was repainted and in July 1983, hundreds of animal lovers attended the completion ceremony of the new bridge.
Peters died in 1984, and a ten-foot wooden squirrel sculpture was placed near the bridge in memoryof its builder and his devotion to the project.

Taiwanese fishing boats that sailed to the Diaoyu Islands to protest(抗议) Japan"s "purchase"(购买) of part of the islands completed their voyage Tuesday morning and have set sail for home.
Local media reported that the boats finished their protest at 9:15 a.m. and are expected to return to a port in northeast Taiwan"s Yilancounty at noon Wednesday.
Although the boats originally numbered 75，they were joined at sea by other boats from different parts of Taiwan, raising the total number to about 100 vessels. Organizers said the voyage was made to protect Taiwanese fishing rights in nearby waters and to protest Japan"s "purchase" of part of the Diaoyu Islands.
The Japanese government announced a plan to "purchase" part of the islands earlier this month despite repeated protests from the Chinese government. The action aroused demonstrations(游行示威) across China as well as consumers" boycott(联合抵制) of Japanese products in recent weeks. Local authorities in Taiwan have also protested the move.
"Japan"s purchase and nationalization(国有化) of China"s Diaoyu Islands is putting China-Japan economic and trade ties at risk due to man-made factors." An official spokesman from Beijing warned .
China-Japan economic and trade relations was back on track in 1952 when the two countries signed their first non-governmental trade agreement. Currently, China has been Japan"s largest trade partner since 2007 while Japan is China’s fourth largest trade partner, after the EU, U.S. and the ASEAN. Meanwhile, China is the biggest destination for Japanese exports and biggest source of imports. In the first half of 2012, Japan"s exports to China totaled 73.54 billion U.S. dollars, down 6.2 percent from the same period last year, while its import from China was 91.29 billion U.S. dollars, up 7 percent from the same period last year.
Now, China-Japan economic and trade relations are at a crossroads. Negotiation could be the way out of the rift.
