Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Today my paternal grandmother turns 93. I can't imagine being that old myself and don't expect to make it to that age. I guess you never know.

My grandmother lives in California and I haven't seen her in 25 years. That is my fault for not traveling across the country. She has always lived on the other shore and thus our relationship has been a long distance one.

She was born in West Virginia. She and my grandfather lived in Salem for a while - that's when my parents met. Then the year I was born they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly ... well, not really. They actually ended up in I think San Hose first and then Chico, which is in the northern part of the state. My grandfather was an insurance claims adjuster and my grandmother was a homemaker.

She lives in a nursing home now and has for about the last four years.  She did well to live alone for so long.

I hope she has a special day. Happy Birthday, Grandma!


  1. Best wishes for your grandmother! How lucky you are to still have her, even if you have not seen her in years. I never really knew any of mine, as they all passed before I was ten.
