                    What Comes With Age
My grandma Judy is an amazing person; in her 75 years here on earth she has accomplished so many things. She started out working with her husband on a farm, and then Judy began attending college at the University of Minnesota for nutrition and health.

A woman with not even half a set of teeth in her head answered the door.

The woman welcomed Judy into her kitchen. They sat down at the kitchen table, which was an old beaten up desk, and she began her explaining.   My grandma told me that the woman seemed very interested in everything that she was telling her. She told me the house smelled of putrid cat urine, since they had several cats all over the house, there were also animal feces and pee spots all over....
