I called my Grampa on Friday to see how he was doing. The nursing staff had to track him down (he lives in a nursing home). For a split second I thought he had tried to escape again, but no, he was just having dinner in the dining hall. I told them I would call back but one second later, there he was.

I am always surprised by how ON he is whenever I talk to him. I used to have to prep a list of talking topics, but he ends up firing more questions my way than the other way around. Not only did he solve the crisis in Japan, but when I told him I gained 16 pounds so far in my pregnancy, he told me I needed to go on a diet! Never a boring call with Grampa.
