We descend upon her once, maybe twice a year, sometimes two of us, sometimes three, including 93-year-old Mom the trooper, and she ALWAYS makes some kind of dinner and invites my step-daughter and granddaughter, whom I see only that once or twice a year, and gives me her car if I need it, and makes us breakfast and snacks and sandwiches for the road, and takes us for long, interesting walks (even in high allergy season) and makes everyone feel perfectly at home and welcome. "You have to really love it...and not be uptight," she says.
