    Bet his memoirs won’t make the New York Times
    “Best Seller” list.

    It will be a treasure. My mom is writing hers. We’ll have them bound for the grandkids. They have no idea how different the world she grew up in is from the one they know.

    About right, sadly… We don not want to be informed, we want to be entertained

    Oh, you’ll never know, Nelson. For sure your future children and grandchildren will like their great- and great-great-grandfather’s memoirs.

    It won’t get any likes, because it won’t be in In-Your-Facebook.

    You are so right — I am a great grandmother, and I recently found some short storys that my grandfather wrote
    on an ancient typewriter he had. It was
    fascinating!

    @linguist. Modern babes is right. I told my eight year old grandson when I was young I had no I-pad, no I-phone and lived in a house that had two bedrooms and I bathroom. He said “that is so sad”

    My grandmother wrote of building the first library in Wasilla in 1938. Way before Sarah Palin was born.

    Casual faceoffs with bears and lack of roads were not uncommon.

    It gets more interesting with time as her world gets further and further away from ours.

    My grandmother had a very unique way of speaking, that was reflective of her Northern Irish hometown. While my mother also used many of the the same aphorisms, they were not delivered with the same nuance.
    At the behest of an editor friend of mine, my mother self-published a small book of these witty and/or pointed sayings – we then gave them to the members of our family as a gift for posterity.
    Not only was it well received, but now, almost 40 years later, is still being requested and reprinted for younger and younger generations, interested in the family history, or in learning how the "ole timers " spoke. This is especially true of my cousins still living in Ireland !

    It’s a good idea for the patriarch or matriarch of a family to share their thoughts and memories. The world continues changing very rapidly.
