Great nana Morris has come to visit her great-grand-daughter.  What a wonderful surprise! She is 83 years old and still drives her car 350 kilometres one way to visit her family.  My children are smitten by this delightful lady.  She wants to tell my children about herself.  She pats me on the arm asking me if that is okay, “Of course it is,” I reply.  She tells the children about her family and how many grandchildren and great grandchildren she has.  Then she goes on to ask my children questions about their grandparents.  They eagerly put up their hands telling her about their grandparents and where they live.  My children then ask nana Morris questions.  What a wonderful surprise. We bid farewell to nana Morris and ask her if we could write her a letter about our swimming day.
