Thursday Thirteen - Grandma isn't listless anymore

Dear Grandma,
You are one of the most outstanding people I have ever known. Still, I wondered if you’ve ever looked back on your life and had any regrets. I hope to learn from your wisdom and experience.

Young and Foolish

Dear Y and F,
You may be less foolish than you think.  Your  letter certainly shows a great deal of insight. Congratulations on being so perceptive. I’ve given this question all the thought it deserves and you’ll find a complete list below:

  1. I regret I didn’t start this advice column earlier in life. This is so easy. And think of all the folks I could have inspired.

That about sums it up.  But if anything else comes to me, I’ll be sure to hide it let you know.

Your humble role model,


Grandma is delighted to be a participant in the Thursday Thirteen meme. You should check it out.
