- Grandma was a pretty tough farm woman who stood 6′ tall, even in her 70s and still had mostly red hair. When I was only 6 years old, Dad took me down to visit for a couple of weeks one summer. Grandma had been napping when our car pulled up outside the farmhouse and I had jumped out and gone running inside to greet her. She awoke, saw me, and started crying. Dad came in and asked what had happened. She said, “I’m so happy to see you both. Come, let’s have a cup of tea!” It was the last time I saw her before she died, but that memory is still alive! ~ AC Cargill
