When we were kids age was a very strange thing. Someone who was over 21 was like amazing, unless it was our parents or immediate relatives. And if someone was over 50 they were ancient! Most of us had relatives or special family friends who were older and we remember them fondly. Who was the oldest relative/friend you remember as a child? What do you remember about
I think for me it would me my grandmother on my dad's side. I'm not sure how old she was when I was a kid but probably nearing 60. She was a tiny lady and very polite. She and I got on so well and I loved her dearly. I would spend a week or two with her in the summer once I reached my teens....she lived about
400 miles away. As much as she was a lady we went fishing most every day. She lived in a tiny cabin of a house on a lake. We'd go down to the dock and catch sunfish, perch and a few other things. Then back home to clean them and cook them up for supper. They tasted better than any steak dinner since Grandma and I caught them together. I could go on and on but that's enough...
Who do you remember as an elderly friend or relative when you were a child?
