    Picture this: Happy birthday, Granny

    Jim's mom turned 83 yesterday.

    This is how I like to remember Granny, with my girls...

    Megan, Andrea, Granny, Brianna — 1994

    She was one of the best.

    We love you, Granny.

    Today's question:

    What age stands out in your memory when thinking of your grandparents — your age and their age.

    Happy Birthday, Jim's Mom!

    I have so many good memories with my Grandparents that it's difficult to choose just one. I'll narrow it down to elementary and junior high years when I would feign illness, so that my working Mom would drop me off to recover at my Nonnie's house. My Nonnie was in her 60s.

    In retrospect, I'm pretty sure that everyone knew I was lying (given my miraculous recovery). Since I kept a 4.0 GPA nobody seemed to care, and I'd love just one more day at my Nonnie's house. I still miss her and our days together.

    What a wonderful picture and Happy Birthday to Granny! Do to an ugly divorce by my parents I didn't see my Grandparents after I turned 11 -- maybe that is part of why I enjoy being a Grandma so much. I want Amara to have everything I didn't have.

    I remember when my granny was 62 I used to tell people she was 92. To me it didn't matter and I did't know one from the other. LOL

    Wow. That's VERY 1994! My grandma was in her 60s in my childhood, turned 70 when I was about 10. Now, early 60s seems pretty young to me!

    When I was about 10 to 14 my cousin and I went to spend a week each summer with our grandmother. She had over 25 grandchildren so those weeks with her were very special. She was probably in her early 70s and was addicted to westerns on TV.

    Happy Birthday to Sweet DEE!

    My Granny would have been in her 60s when I was privileged to spend much time at her house (I would have been just under 10 up to 12 or 13). But, I remember so many special times both before that and after that time. There was never anyone in my life who has ever influenced me as much as that precious lady.

    I remember my grandfather from when I was in high school, as he lived with us. I always see him coming out to the pool in his yellow bun hugger bathing suit and embarrassing me to death.

    I was 12 and lost three in one month :( My only remaining grandmother lived to the ripe old age of 94 and I had one grandchild :)

    I remember being little, around 5 and my sister, 8. Twice a year, we drove 8 hours to west Texas to visit with my grandparents who were, probably, around 60. I'll always remember the moment my grandparents came to the door to greet us - such joy!
