Good ol’Grandma Latta

My Grandma Latta saw a lot of change in her life. After all, she used to ride a horse to school,or so her story goes. Yeah, she saw a lotta change in her 93 years and embraced absolutely none.

Well, maybe she liked a few technologies. She loved planes, for example. She loved to travel. The crazy thing about that she sure didn’t pick up much culture on these world travels. She still referred to her hometown , Lone Tree, Iowa, as “the real world”and only ate with a spoon.

She liked the microwave too. However, everything she cooked was for 1 minute twenty three seconds. So basically, she’d just run her finger across the numbers 1,2,3 and that was good enough for her.

I guess if it were up to Grandma, she woulda been wringing her chickens necks and plucking them for dinner.(which, by the way, she called EVERY meal.) That, after all, was the only “real” way to live!

Sadly, I’m afraid she was a relic of a bygone era. The greatest generation is slipping away.

I’ll miss her and everybody else’s Grandparents too.

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
