Last night I talked to my Auntie Lo, she is my dads sister, and will be 96 in June.
She is in a nursing home in Iowa and was in the hospital for a few days.
She has such a fantastic attitude, right now she is hoping to live long enough so she can vote for Hillary.
I didn't want to pop her balloon and tell her that she may not have that chance, even though she may still be here then.
I think she was in her 80's when she went to her first Iowa caucus, she loved it and wished she had gone sooner in her life.
She would call me periodically just to talk politics, because she couldn't find anyone who was interested in it.
I remember many summers spent on the farm.
I enjoyed the trips there until I was about 14 or so, then I wanted to be home with my
I did love all the family reunions we had on the farm, making homemade ice cream, fried chicken
that made your mouth water.
These were chickens she raised, not shot full of antibiotics or kept in pens.
She could dress a chicken in 5 minutes and she had many customers who would come and pick them up
Today they are called organic, and very expensive.
Many years later she worked as a cook at a resort in the summer and spent her winters in Arizona.
Lo was the glue on my dads side of the family, we no longer have any gatherings.
She has one younger sister left, but she is always feuding with someone and right now
I don't even think she talks to half of her own kids.
I only see her at funerals, and that is enough for me.
LO a pioneer woman who's only dream right now is to see a woman President.
