My paternal grandmother is on my mind because today would've been her 100th birthday if she were alive. Alas, she passed away in April, 2011 (follow the link to read what I wrote at the time). I miss her. I wish I could give her a call and tell her about the music I heard yesterday and how cold it is in Austin today. "Eeegh!" she would've said about the cold. Short for "Hijo!" I suppose. She used to say that a lot. I'm smiling a little and crying a little and am going to go listen to some young people play music in a little bit and smile some more.
