Grant's grandmother is affectionately known as Granny. And oh how we love our dear Granny. She might be turning 80 but she is all spunk, this one. I fell in love with her from the moment I met her. And I have just come to love her even more dearly as the years go on.
I never had a chance to know my own grandparents as an "adult" because I lost all of them by the time I was 25. So, I have been extra happy to know Grant's grandparents so well. They are each unique and lovely in their own ways, but Granny and I have so much in common--first and foremost a love of music. We don't get to see them nearly as much as we would like, but she and her hubby Grandpa J are sharp as tacks and so much fun to chat with. They are full of life and love.
And I think Granny might like me, too. At least she thinks I have a nice rack. ;)
The very first time I met her, while Grant and I were still just dating, she had some choice words of wisdom for Grant: As she was giving him a hug goodbye after our visit she whispered in his ear, "Hang on to this one. She's got a nice rack!" Can you see why I love this lady? We laughed the entire 5 hour trip home. Granny, only Granny...
Happy Birthday to one extraordinary 80 year old!
