My Grandparents are Famous!


I grew up thinking my grandparents were great, but obviously I’m not the only one! They are now the “spokes couple” for their retirement community, how cute is that? This picture scrolls at college football games, is included in some local dollar saver ads the community runs, and is located in both wings of our local airport, life size and back lit! Sweetpea had the unique opportunity to wave at her great grandparents as I strolled her by on our way to fly to Florida a few weeks back. When I was traveling a lot after I returned to work it was fun to have a familiar pair of faces to send me off and greet me upon my return. I don’t know how much longer it will last, but I’m enjoying it while it does! My adorable 92 year old grandpa told me the other day, “It’s beginning to become embarrassing, people are starting to recognize us at the grocery!” My grandma turns 88 this weekend, and truly I don’t think there could be a better spokes couple for a retirement community—they both still drive, play golf, participate in community outings and attend many of the local theatre events. Grandpa is still active in Rotary and has lunch with his friends each Tuesday. Grandma still has her weekly bridge game, though I think they might be having a little more trouble than usual filling the tables. There is a golf event in her honor each year at the club they belong to, and she still plays in it! How wonderful for me that I still get to actively visit with my grandparents. How precious for me to watch them interact with my daughter!
