simple life of a grand mother
I think I can see a Ghost in the second picture; and I don't even believe in Ghosts!
It is a soap bubble, or may be a ghost.
My father is 85 years old and we Skype courtesy of his partner's laptop. He always peers into the computer screen looking totally baffled and bewildered at the magic of technology! I'm not sure how it all works either.
Me too, i still wonder how the fax works.
Peter's mother is 95 and he sees her everyday. He just takes it for granted.
I see him once a week, i think we all take our parents for granted. That's our human nature.
What do your grandchildren call their great grandfather? Do they talk to him on the phone, too? I remember two of my great grandmothers, but just barely.
They call him grandfather, it is simple for them.
I'll bet that old gentleman could tell some tales. He lived through turbulent times.
May be my next post will be about some of the things that he tells.His mind is clear and he remembers a lot.
Yes please Yael, I want to hear Abba's stories too (not the pop group nor the brand of pickled herrings; funny how the same word can mean different things in different parts of the world).
I shall try. my english is so dull that i find it hard sometimes. Thank you for commenting here, i like your blog.
The kids have a good point.I wish I had someone to still call Abba.
I tell him sometimes how lucky he is to see his daughter as a grandmother.
I still have my mother, and we talk often... now that she has moved back to the area I'm looking forward to seeing her often as well. I still miss my Dad every day.Give yours an extra hug from me when you see him next?I, for one, would like to read your Abba's stories; I'm sure he recalls many of the things my Dad shared with me.
Thank you Jacquelin for your nice comment, my fother wrote 20 children's books and he likes to tell stories, it is me who is so bad in telling stories, but i shall try.
It is nice to see a post from you Yael..it has been too long since the last one! I hope that you are well. How hot is it in Israel at this time of year? X
Very hot here Frances,37c,but soon it will be better.
How lucky are you to still have your father and how much luckier are your grandchildren to have a great grandfather. He will have so many important stories to tell as he has lived not only through a turbulent period but also a period of great social change, which makes me wonder how life will be for our grandchildren when they reach great grandparent age.Sorry for the late reply Yael ... I have spent a few days with my daughter in the city.
It is ok Shirley. I remeber the days that you was my one and only follower:)I am also quiet bussy withe the summer holiday of the grandchildren
It is wonderful that your father is 95, what a great age. How lucky to have your father still with you.
Sorry 92 years old .
It is ok Leisha, glad to see you here:)
Thank you Yael. I enjoy your blog and your comments.
