My amazing Grandmother!

I just came from visiting my Grandma Maude — who is 101 years old (and a half!) and who is also the vein of iron that runs beneath the bedrock of this family.

Her powers are mighty, and — to my eye — undiminished.

Her quote of today: "Well, it's no use ever complaining, because it doesn't change anything, and all it does is make everyone around you miserable."

A toast to the strength of the matriarchs of this world. May their iron run stronger through our own veins every year…
