My 97 year old "Bubbe" goofing with us. (Update: she's now 99)

Took the kids to California and spent last weekend with my grandmother, their great-grandmother. I probably took 1000 pics of her and after a while she (and my kids) got tired of the constant shutter clicks. They got her going making all sorts of faces at me.

"Stick your tongue out, Bubbe."

"Roll your eyes, Bubbe."

"Give him the middle finger, Bubbe."

(she had no idea what that meant until the kids explained to her what pointing the middle finger at someone meant.)

She immediately looked shocked and then upset.

She said "I would never do that to your father."

To which they responded "Why not?!? People do it to him in New York all the time."
