My Grandma

My Grandma Newton

  • had no automobile;
  • had no television;
  • had no radio;
  • had no telephone;
  • had an ice box instead of a refrigerator until 1952;
  • had no modern record player;
  • didn’t own a book except a Bible;
  • didn’t think much of music except hymns;
  • didn’t approve of my father’s choice of profession;
  • didn’t approve of dancing;
  • didn’t approve of alcohol;
  • didn’t approve of card playing;
  • would play Dominoes with me by the hour;
  • never left the house, even to go to church, most of her adult life;
  • basically had no life at all;
  • was probably well-suited for playing Farmville.

It was not until recently that it ever occurred to me that there was anything unusual about her.
