Fun stream-of-consciousness from a cantankerous oldster. I like it a lot.

One minor thing--since the date September 11 is so firmly in our minds as the date of the terrorist attacks, you might choose a different one. For a moment, I was thinking that your story was going to be about that.

The voice here is absolutely spot-on and made for a great read.
What a surprise for Grandma! I like the voice of this character very much. She tried to put the best face on her loneliness and make do with it. I was happy with the ending, too.
