IF January 29/10 "Focused"

I wouldn't have bet on the little guy - until I saw the magnifying glass in his arsenal. Reminded me of my grandmother - self-sufficient in the face of cataracts and arthritis, slowed down by angina and age, but always focusing her efforts - and getting her greatest enjoyment - from doing what she'd always done: inviting birds to her back window, meeting the challenge of the daily crossword, knitting another row, cooking another meal - and if it took a magnifying glass to get it all done, she was ok with it.
