It has been really fun to learn about my Grandma. I consider Helen and me kindred spirits. I we are a lot alike (well actually maybe I am a lot like her). I talk to random strangers EVERYWHERE, I pick food of other people plates and I have been known to wrap up food in a napkin and taken it home from a restaurant in my purse. Surprisingly, these were all things that embarrassed me as a child...haha I was destined to be just like her.
Here are a few things I am learning and finding entertaining while typing Grandma Berger's life story.
- I come from a long line of chatters
Turns out Helen's mother was also a Chatty Cathy. Grandma points out how Grandma Rees loved to take the train back and forth from Utah to California because she liked to talk with her train compartment neighbors. She made friends with everyone and easily made conversation. So talking is something I inherited. Sorry for all those who try to get a word in when I am in the room, I was born this way.
- Thought this little note about my Aunt Nan's grades was funny.
Nancy "got an “A” in sewing, “outstanding” in cooperation but “unsatisfactory” in obedience.”
- Who is Sharon?
When I was reading about my Great Grandma Berger's death from cancer (also a fact I never knew) I discovered a half sister I have never heard of. My Grandpa Tom Berger was previously married (news to me) and had a daughter Sharon. Who knew? Not me.
- My mom is so cute
I know everyone thinks this about their own mother, but my mother's baby and childhood photos are so cute. Now I know where I get it from.
