We commiserated over frozen shoulders ... both of hers have been frozen, too. We chatted about this and that. And oh, we laughed! Norma has so many crazy stories. You really should hear her tell about having her husband help her get pantyhose on when her shoulders were too frozen to do it herself. My God! If that isn't a sitcom episode already on some show, it should be!
And I love her lingering Scottish lilt. I should tape her saying "girl" ("gairl" with a gently rolled "r") and just listen to it over and over again.
It was lovely to spend some time with Norma and be inspired by her approach to life ... many interests, many talents, much laughter, and beauty in everything and to soak up a bit of her soothing environment.
