Memo and Pepo


I have so many fond memories of my grandparents, Memo and Pepo (said with a long e in case you weren't sure). I still regret in my not so wise high school days, asking if I could call them Grandma and Grandpa instead b/c I was that cool, and Memo and Pepo was so ten years ago. They seriously crack me up, and there is never a dull moment.
They recently bought a burnt orange Kia from some hot car salesman. My grandpa backed into the garage, dented the bumper, and busted the tail light within the first two weeks of purchase. Also, he knocked the siding off the passenger door. My grandma on the other hand, smashed the mirror on the driver's side.
When my grandfather broke his hip a few months ago, my grandma assumed responsibility as the driver, scary scary thing. She did not know how to use the air conditioning in the car, (much less anything else) so I drove to her house at least twice a week to show her what to do. I guess my instruction, and the picture I ended up drawing for her of the a.c. controls, was not helpful because she continued to sweat all summer in the Kia Rio. She had never pumped her own gas before either, so that became my new summer job.

A few highlights of things my grandparents do that make them my favs....
-My grandma brings her own bags/Styrofoam containers when we go out to eat and is insulted when the waitress offers the restaurant's to her...

-My grandpa always has anywhere from $1.50-$2.00 in fuelperks on his Giant Eagle card. What he is buying, and why does he always give his perks to me? :)

-After I had my rhinoplasty (sounds so much better than "nose job") and I walked down the steps from the surgeon's office after having my bandages removed, my grandma said, "Wow, I thought it would be smaller."

-My grandpa buys and gives me random things including: Crocks and coats from Aldi's, peanut butter filled pretzels by the gallon, and his own special stew. This stew equates from finding leftovers in the fridge, including lunchmeat and throwing it in a pot to simmer all day.

-They are the most generous people I have ever met, and I am blessed to have them as my grandparents. :)
