Old Photographs

Grandma and I spent the afternoon looking at lots of photographs. The photos were pictures of grandma when she was young. I was so happy!  I could not believe how beautiful grandma looked in the pictures. She had great stories about her cruise to Cuba, how she met the ship's captain and borrowed his uniform for a party on his ship!  She also looked to travel!  She went to Haiti, Cuba, England, Paris, Niagara Falls and more!  She remembered a lot of details. That is because she has a good long-term memory.  If people store their memories when they are young, the brain is strong and can hold them better.  She recognized herself!  We laughed and some of the pictures made grandma sad because the people in the pictures have died.
