Grandma by the Dinosaurs

My grandma has been staying at my parent's house for a few months and wanted to spend some one-on-one time with her eldest grandchild (moi) before she went back to Sacramento, and of course I obliged.

To differentiate between my maternal grandparents who lived 3 miles from home, this set of grandparents has always been known as Grandma and Grandpa by the Dinosaurs for this reason:
They lived in Joshua Tree and we always passed through Cabazon, home of the famous T-Rex and Brontosaurus that hang out by the freeway, to get there.

Last weekend Grandma and I enjoyed a great afternoon chat. She is one of the nicest, gentlest, and goodhearted souls that walk this earth. I am glad we have been able to spend time together while she's been down, and I think upon her farewell dinner in a week or two, I'll have to find the ingredients to make her favorite drink, a Pink Squirrel.
