Never too old...

This is my grandma, 91, playing on my laptop computer. I just love the contrast between technology and her age. She grew up without electricity and most creature comforts. She took to playing solitaire quickly and I showed her how to use the mouse, etc. She didn't like the fact that she couldn't cheat in this version. Grandma liked computers so much that at the Care Home where she lived she often could be found playing on their computer. Sometimes she stalked the other users(seniors) until they would leave - too funny. She didn't quite get the whole "shut down" notion though; rather, used the power switch.
