Greetings, dear readers! Happy Monday to you. I hope if you indulged in the holiday over the weekend, you’ve recovered today. Saturday, I got to visit with my grandma, who is a proud 98 1/2 years old.
She is, by far, the oldest person I know. She’s always like to sing, and on Saturday, she burst into song several times during our visit. She sang “In Your Easter Bonnet” when showing my kids her Easter decorations, and then she sang “Back Home Again in Indiana” after she recited all 92 Indiana counties in alphabetical order (she likes to do things to flex her memory).
Growing up, I thought all grandmas burst into song, but I don’t know that that’s true. When I was a kid, she and I would sing and dance the “Hokey Pokey” in front of her girlfriends. I thought it was perfectly normal, but my kids do not have such routines with my mom, so I don’t know.
Do the older people in your life sing? What do they sing? How was your weekend? Did you do anything for Easter or Passover?
