National Grandparents Day

National Grandparents Day is this Sunday, Sept. 7!

Link: "The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade [the picture is of her] (now age 91), a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day."

That means there's one more shopping day till the big day. Flowers is an easy choice and sure to please.

Grandma and I will be spending the day pretty much like we spend every day, with a quiet day at home.
