We the Women The white-haired grandmother was trying to explain why she lound the company of one of her contemporaries so unbearably duil. "It's just," she finally summed up, "that she's so SETTLED." The white-haired grandmother, though in her late sixties, " isn't 'settled." She keeps up with what is going on in the world instead ot living in the past or trying to live the lives of her grown children and grandchildren. , She can pick up and take off on a* moment's notice—and frequently dors. She- isn't hog-tied to her home. 11 her husband asks how about going along with him on a busine.Vi trip, she locks the doors of her house and leaves with him.
