Yesterday was my maternal grandparents’ anniversary.  63 years, my mother told me. We lost both of them in the last year.  Nana on Dec 28th, 2012 and Pop on June 20th, 2013.

They were both such pillars of my family that life feels weird without them.  But, more on that perhaps in another post.



My grandmother was a character.  A firecracker, if you will… and I think you will.

 One of the many things I like to remember about her is the way she would sing “Hey Good Lookin'” by Hank Williams.  You see, she did not just sing it.  She did this adorable little shoulder shimmy and gave you flirty eyes.  Usually, she just sang the chorus and it made me smile every time

Yesterday I was returning something to Forever 21 and entered the mall through Macy’s.  When I entered, what was playing?  “Hey Good Lookin'”  It made me smile and I hung around in the women’s section just to here the remainder of the song.

Happy 63rd anniversary Nana and Pop.  I miss you guys like you wouldn’t believe so your little check-ins are appreciated.
