*********************************************
Everyone, at least in my World, has a Grandmom that is a Norman Rockwell of Grandmoms, then you have the "hip" Grandmom. Grandmom Louise was the cool grandmom. She wasn't scared of anything, except maybe the ghosts that were said to reside at the old house on the farm. :)

Like her Mother, she knew how to shoot, and did. We are talking shotguns here. She had the best laugh, I can still hear it. She told me that after Grandpa passed away, he came and pulled her toes at night lol. Not sure if she really thought that, or was just joshing me.

Grandma was a fun woman. Great sense of humor. She worked until she reached full retirement, and like my Dad, never got to enjoy it. I like to think she is doing that now.
