    Hey - that was my 1,000th post! And it was about food. How appropriate.

    My grandmother is also 94. Does anyone have older grandmothers than bluestater and I?

    She'll be 95 in January. A few months ago, the doctor told her that she'll live to be 100. When she told my father this, he said "That's only six more years!" And she said, "Damn it. I forgot how old I was."

    She really is a force to be reckoned with. She goes to the riverboat casinos every few months, and cooks Sunday dinner for my family every week. She actually fell at the restaurant today, and rolled her ankle a bit, but she was up and walking soon after. She was more embarrassed than anything.

    My grandmother will be 95 in February. She has lived through Russian Revolution, Civil War, and WWII. She was born before Soviet Union was formed and will die after its breakup. She can walk around the house but she doesn't go outside anymore. Every time I talk to her she asks me when I am getting married.

    Yeah, it's an amazing thing to talk to them about what we consider history, and what to them is just their lives. My grandma was born a coal miner's daughter in Alabama, and then moved to southern Illinois. She was around for all of the different labor uprisings, riots, etc. When she and my grandfather married, the wedding was on her lunch hour, because it was during the depression, she had a job, and he didn't, and she would have lost her job if she took any time off.

    How was your dad yesterday? Well I hope. Tell him we are still expecting a quick and full recovery, nothing less.

    Happy Belated Thanksgiving. I didn't see this post earlier or I would have said something before now...
