    I used to enjoy taking my grandmother to appointments when she finally gave up driving (and running the boat, and building stone walls for a hobby) at about 89. We'd go have lunch sometimes.

    She died a year ago last month at 91, quite unexpectedly. Knowing her, her last thought was "This pisses me off, I won't be able to vote for President Obama next year!".

    I do miss our conversations about something outrageous in politics or some article or fiction in The New Yorker. And of course, I miss her, too.

    So keep on taking your mother places. Savor every day with her.
