In other news, my mother and grandmother showed me pictures of said grandmother and my grandfather (they're divorced). My grandparents were mighty good-lookin' folk! My grandmother was way hotter than I am at the same age, which I think is pretty cool.

(There were two pictures of her on a beach in a bathing suit.

Just thought I'd let you all know who I am. I'm sure many of you are already bored with it. (: I don't mind being late to the party!
