Old Fashioned

My grandmother,who will turn 103 this October 12th,recalls roaming throughout the Bronx on her roller skates. She remembers riding with her Aunt Minnie on a horse drawn trolley. She remembers when the New York subway opened up, saw the ticker tape parade for Lindberg among many other things. What a treasure trove she is. My grandmother phones me regularly and gives me the rundown on everything that's going on. Nothing gets by her. What a blessing it is to still have her formidable wisdom and wit.
