A grandmother is a mother who has a second chance

You know you're getting old when....

....you're walking with your grandaughter.

She grabs your arm and starts to rub it.

Then she says, "Hey, Babushka, the skin on your arms is really loose!!"

Yeah, thanks.

I actually think Vika meant that as a compliment. Maybe.

This cracks me up...my brother and sister and I used to make fun of my grandmas arms. her arms were like loaves of bread but the rest of her was skinny. One day we were visiting her and she said "you know, my arms is fat, did you know that? I just noticed that I have fat arms" My sister and I laughed uncontrollably for 15 minutes straight til our stomaches couldn't take it anymore. She thought we'd lost it. She wasn't thinkin them arms were funny! :)N

I had this same conversation with my grandma not too long ago...she in return pointed out the fat under my arms. Gotta love her!

Saw you at Lisa's and had to comment. Love what you said about fifties and sixties, as I'm 59 pushing 60 really hard. Nice blog!
