I remember having the same sort of relationship with my grandfather, thinking him wiser than the rest of the family. One fact about each of my grandparents (only maternal because my Dad's parents died before I was born)
My grandfather took my brother to get allergy shots on Saturday mornings. And he and I would wait in the car while Jeff got his shots. I would ask him all sorts of questions about everything and he always answered me seriously. Those morning, which must have been hell for Jeff, were gold for me.
My grandmother was not too drawn to children. But she did like to sew and she made me the most fabulous clothes for my Ginny dolls. She did it all of it by hand and every skirt or dress and even hats and coats were perfect and wonderful. I was the envy of all my girlfriends.
What do you remember about your grandparents?
