Elma is my 83 year old mother-in-law. My father-in-law, her husband Bill, passed away August 29, 2009 and Elma came to live with us.
Her parents are from Spain although she was born in New York City on East 78th street and lived in the city until Bill and she bought a home in the suburbs of Long Island. She lived in Wantagh, New York until she moved to Georgia in 1991 to be closer to us and our 2 daughters.
Elma loves to eat, but to look at her, you wouldn’t know it. She is particular about eating in “nice places”. She will eat fast food, but prefers to be served by a nice waiter or waitress. She loves sweets, but we usually eat so much for lunch that we can’t fit dessert! She favors burgers when we go out and is very critical about the way it tastes and how it is served.
She always asks for a senior citizen discount wherever we go. She MUST get a bargain for everything she buys.
She has a great sense of humor and is a lot of fun to be around.
