The secret to a long life? Add plenty of salt to everything. It's a preservative for the body. My brother David and I took our Great-Grandma Bell out to a Chinese restaurant a couple years ago. Chinese restaurants don't have salt shakers on the table, so Grandma made me go up to the cooks and ask for salt. They raised their eyebrows, and then gave me a small bowl of coarse salt. After pouring the whole thing all over her tiny portion, Grandma was ready to eat.
In the words of Grandma, "by golly," I love that woman. I'm so lucky to have her in my life, and I'm excited to introduce her to her great-great-grandson in a few weeks.
