My sister Lindsay who was named for her, asked her one day, “Grannie, do you ever get bored sitting here in your chair all day, just reading and looking out that window?”
“Oh no!” she emphatically declared, with that twinkle in her eye. And then she uttered one of those bits of wisdom that we have cherished from her.
YOU’LL NEVER GET OLD AS LONG AS YOU ARE CURIOUS!
Thanks, Grannie, for passing along that gene to me! If I can be as healthy and in as good mind as you were for nearly 90 years, I’ll earnestly seek to “grow old gracefully”, which by the way was another of her oft declared bits of wise advice.
