It is my fondest wish to get to the age where when you say certain things it is cute. (This, as far as I can tell, runs from about 3-6, and then pauses til about seventy). So, I adore Margaret and Helen, two real life grandmas whose grandkids find them hilarious, so started a blog for them. They are not shy, not about family or politics, so it's not for everyone, but I adore them. And in particular, the annual Thanksgiving letter which has been posted. Small sample:
"We lost your Grandpa this year and suddenly everyone wants to be together for the holidays. Well isn't that just the shit. I hope you all learned your lesson. Treasure your family while they are still here – not after they are gone. Life is a series of lessons. Pay attention.
Now about Thanksgiving… Your Aunt Trudy thinks that just because Thanksgiving dinner is at her house this year, I am not in charge. Well bless her heart."
The rest is here.
