This picture was taken a few weeks ago. Grandma grabbed my hand and started taking my ring off my finger. I took it off and gave it to her, and she immediately put it on her own hand and flaunted it around for the next hour or so. Mom told me that she was going through a stage of really liking shiny things. This is just one small example of her silliness and her talent for being herself. Don't know many other people who would do something like that without thinking twice about it. She felt no shame in being who she was. So cute!
This picture cracks me up. Grandma has lived in an assisted living home for the past 6 or so years. I'm sure she kept everyone entertained. This picture was taken a couple of weekends ago when Mom took Daisy up to visit with Grandma. Grandma put Daisy on her walker and walked all around the assisted living home introducing people to her great-grand-dog, Daisy.
This is by far my favorite. Grandma liked to be 'free' and often didn't wear bras. Well, one Christmas (I think 2006), she came down to Charleston for a week or so but hadn't brought a brazier with her. Valerie and I marched her down to Victoria's Secret (while Laura was working) to get her a bra. This is the one she picked out. A red, satin, push-up bra. She was 80 years old! And not only did she buy the bra and wear it, but she enjoyed showing it to all of our friends and family who were gathered at our house for a Christmas party--the whole thing! No shame, Grandma. I will certainly never forget that Christmas and might just go out and buy a red satin bra in honor of my beautiful, unique, incredible grandmother.
