We have not checked in on Great Grandma recently and I've been feeling badly about that. So tonight we did. I called Rusy her caretaker around 5:30 and said we were finishing dinner and we'd be over within the hour if that suited her. It did. And we went.
It isn't easy to keep up a conversation these days, so we opted for a game of cards. "Go Fish" so that everybody could play. 8 year old Bitsy offered to be on Great Grandma's team.

Great Grandma likes to make sure the kids have snacks and sweets. She usually has stock of Dove bars but with the weather they haven't been shopping. So Rusy pulled out everything they did have! Edy's Juice ice pops, Pepperidge farm cookies, left over Valentine's candy... I stepped out into the sitting room to speak to Great Grandma and Bitsy stole my phone to take pictures.
