My first meeting with Bob’s parents

When I was growing up, we addressed adults formally. “Hello, Mrs. Stephens.” But that wasn’t going to work with Bob’s parents.

Here’s my recollection of meeting the ‘Manzkes” for the first time.

In the early 1970s, Grandma Manzke was Bob’s grandmother. I’m not sure if that’s my title today or not. I’m trying for Grandma Susan, or just plane Grandma when no other grandmother is around.

Yes, formally, I’m Mrs. Manzke, but I’m not sure if I know that person.
