I hope your Gram reads this......
I took my Mom with me to Las Vegas in 1996 where I was playing in a pool tournament. At 75, it was the first time that she had ever been there. Having grown up during the Great Depression, Mom had always been very frugal. I "introduced" her to the penny multi-line video slot machines, and she instantly fell in love with them. We would sometimes play them for hours on end. On our return trip to Florida, Mom asked me when I would be going back to Las Vegas, again. It became our routine to make the trip every year until her death in 2006.
I wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world.
She did. Thank you. She said, "What a nice young man." That was a compliment to you no matter your age because everyone is younger than Gran, and it was a sugar coated way to tell me to get married already. (I'm a female despite my nickname which is male). Thank you for the story. It made her smile and warmed both our hearts. She still insists I have gold on my hands.
One of my favorite actresses is Charlize Theron.
