25398Re: The moral of the story. (Wings)
- Dec 2, 2005Dear Wings,
Great story as always. This gal reminds me of my grandmother who
passed away two years ago at the age of 97. Grand lady who
faithfully, goos year or bad, rooted for the Detroit Tigers and
always had a bottle of whiskey in her cupboard for, as she
said, "medicinal purposes." She rode to Sturgis (huge motorcycle
rally in South Dakota) in her seventies on the back my cousin's
Harley and would have gone skydiving on her eightieth birthday, but
her cardiologist talked her out of it. Nothing kept
her down until she had a stroke at 92 and lost the use of one arm and
one leg. Thanks for reviving some nice memories for me.
