I simply adore my grandparents – Henry and Willa Mae Bobo.  Henry is 85 years of age; Willa Mae is 83.  They are both struggling with health issues.  They eloped when they were 18 and 16 respectively (or so I remember).  Here is a short list of things I adore about them:

  1. they have been married over 65 years.
  2. they practically raised my brother and I.
  3. my grandad taught me the importance of having a good work ethic.
  4. my grandad taught me how to be affectionate toward my wife.   He still calls his wife, “baby.”
  5. my grandmother taught me how to use my imagination.  She would trick us when we were little by telling us that a guest stayed in the attic, her name was Minne and she loved hot dogs.  We were so gullible.
  6. my grandmother taught me the importance of having a balanced meal.  Each meal she served included protein, a vegetable, and fruit and a glass of milk.
  7. they taught me how to drive and they gave me my first car – a 1967 T-Bird (=Thunderbird) that I later took to college.  However, it sat most of the time because it did not run!
