Tonight Marie, Mom and I tried to teach Grandma how to play sudoku.

It didn't go over very well.

She wanted to learn because it is apparently all the rage in upstate New York amongst the senior citizens. Well, according to Grandma's cousin, it's all the rage. "Suppose to help your brain," she says.

After about 20 minutes of working on a puzzle and trying to understand the concept, Grandma let out a shriek and proclaimed she needed to go home and take a bath. As she was walking out the door tonight, she grumbled, "There is no way that will help my brain..."

I think I'll get Grandma a book of easy large-print sudoku puzzles for Christmas.
