My grandmothers were age 54 and 65 when I was born. As far as I know, neither one ever drove a car, took a trip that didn’t involve visiting family, or chose to exert herself to stay fit. They didn’t need to, work took care of that.
My grandfathers drove, but one died before I was born and the other was someone I heard more about than ever got to know first hand.
Whether I knew them or not, I am confident my grandparents never traveled to another country, learned a second language, kayaked, swam for the fun of it, ran in charity races, took dance lessons, wrote a book, or even took photos of their grandchildren.
If you’re old enough to have grandchildren, what do you do that you’re sure your grandmother or grandfather never had a chance to do?
