I was with my grandmother over Memorial Day weekend, and I got to be around her stories. I love them. They are simple, straightforward, and to the point. I've heard many of them so many times I can re-tell them with parts of her inflection and manner. I used to wish she would tell different stories, but as she and rest of the family are aging, I'm glad I have a number of the stories memorized. They connect me to my dad, my uncles, and my aunt in ways that would never be available otherwise, and in so doing, connect me more to myself.
