Do It. Now.

Today I was scanning pictures and I scanned some of Lake Sheridan where I knew Grampa had built or done something.  I started Googling for info.  Was it the Peace Corps?  Something like that...

After about an hour or two of just searching and reading, I heard my brain say the freaking stupidest thing.  "Someday I will have to ask Grampa about this."

Serously.  My brain said that.  Grampa is amazing and active and amazing and vibrant.  But he is 92 years old... Why do I always say, "Someday"?  So I picked up the phone and called.  Grampa told me all about his time in the Civilian Conservation Corps in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  We talked for 30 min or so.  It was wonderful.

So don't save up the questions.  Don't say "Someday".  Just call.  Now.  It's easier than you think and WAY more fun than Google.  (although afterward if you do Google, send Grampa the links to see all the pictures you find.  And have Amazon send him that book you find, too).
