Grandma Carter is the undisputed matriarch of our little branch of the family tree. She is nowhere near the oldest Carter, but she’s walked the walks and talked the talks, so she’s the one the family listens to when it’s time to listen. She spends most of her time on Mars, where she’s got a leading role in the terraforming project that made Mars not red anymore. She actually owns a beautiful house on a lake stocked with the best fish, and loves to have the family over for holidays. She usually keeps her place at Earth normal gravity, which is good for those of us who grew up on Earth, but can give the native Martians real fits if she doesn’t turn it down for them. I try to stop by every time I get back to Earth. It’s good to have family to visit.
