December 15th-Lunch With Grandma Ruth

This is my Grandma Ruth. She's 85 years old. (she looks great for 85 doesn't she-she's not very wrinkly-This gives me hope-that stuff is genetic right?) She's got all of her faculties, like every single one she was born with. She's the oldest of 13 children. She had 4 children of her own. She has 7 grandkids and 9 Great Grand kids.  She likes to gamble, garden and crochet and after my grandpa passed away she drove his Monte Carlo SS for quite some time before a young guy down the street bought it. (I don't think she revved the engine much.) She went to England this past summer for 2 weeks.  She has a boyfriend whom she's been caught kissing. She complained about him today. (I love that at 85 she is complaining about her boyfriend, I LOVE it! He;s 87, soon to be 88.) She's pretty feisty sometimes when it comes down to it.

I am very very lucky to be the age I am and still get to go out to lunch with my grandma.

Crissy, I cried reading your post about your Gramma! You are so blessed to have her around. Make sure you kiss her everytime you see her!

That's wonderful :) You make me miss my grandparents almost enough to come back to Rochester for a day or so :P

Oh, well in that case, I saw your grandparents recently. They told me they miss you very much and would love a visit from you. ;-)

I love your grandpa and his shy little smile whenever anyone mentions the French Farm girl.

'Course, Cath and I have been crying about EVERYTHING in our office today... Not sure if they are pumping extra estrogen in here or something... But, I too feel very blessed to be slightly over 21 ;) and still have my Gram as such a big part of my life! God willing, we'll be around for our grandkids and great grandkids!!
