CK Chat Generation Gap Willo Historic District Phoenix Az

Today I sat down at Grandma Betty's house and had a little discussion that went like this:

Grandma Betty: Have you ever read the entire "Christmas Carol" by Dickens?
Me: No
Grandma: Here, (hands it to me) Do you want to read it?
Me: No, I should really get to work now. Why? 
Grandma: I don't think I've ever read the whole story.
Me: Did you learn something you didn't know before?
Grandma: Yes, I didn't know the first ghost showed Scrooge he was dead. 
Me: You didn't know that?
Grandma: I just didn't realize it was him before, I guess. Your mom and Raymond said they have seen it on TV. 
Me: You have never seen it?
Grandma: No, only read the book. 
Me: I don't think I've ever read the book, only seen it on TV. Image title

Conversations like these make me wonder what life must have been like for her growing up. She's seen so many things. She still lives in the same house she built when my mother was little. Originally from West Virginia, they moved to Yuma in 1962, and then to Phoenix October 31, 1969. I was born in Phoenix in 1981 and this place has changed so much over my lifetime. I drive through the Willo District and strip away all the updating and progression of the times in my imagination and try to see it through Grandma Betty's eyes. She's sitting here next to me freezing in this 60 degree weather. She's such a cute Ol' Lady. Wanna live by Grandma Betty?
