My mother-in-law was born in Augusta, GA. Grannie is still living on the dairy family farm in North Augusta, SC. She needs more help these days but her sense of humor remains.
Grannie's mind has been slipping. On a previous visit a couple of months ago, she informed Judith that she was going to be 106 on her next birthday. Grannie remembered she was born in 1916. Lovingly, Judith walked her though the proper calculation to get to 93.
Judith and I were visiting with Grannie a couple of weekends ago. Testing Grannie's mental clarity, Judith asked her, "Mother, what birthday is coming up on March 3rd?"
Grannie smiled and said, "My last… at least that's the way everyone seems to be treating it, what with the party that is planned and all." Her mind may be slipping but her humor isn't!
