Today would have been my grandmother's 100th birthday.

She was the only grandparent I had. But, with that said, I was very young when she passed away so my memories of her are unfortunately limited.

I can remember little bits about spending time with her. Most aren't really good memories because she was in ill-health due to arthritis for the latter stages of her life. I remember her having to go into hospital numerous times. One memory I have is of the hospital bus that would drop people home from their hospital stays parking up outside my home. I was across the road and saw them helping my Nan off and I was jumping up and down outside yelling 'Nan's home! Nan's home!'

When getting ready to write this post, I had a look over an 'On This Day In History' website to see what I could find for 1919.

I couldn't find anything. There was something that happened 100 years ago yesterday (German Communist Party declares a strike) and 100 years tomorrow (Louis Hirsch and Harold Atteridge's musical premieres in New York City), but I drew a blank on March 4th.
