“We grow up with dreams in our eyes and songs on our lips and we discover that life is not what we thought it would be. And then, we discover nostalgia.” – Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Some of the best childhood memories are made during days with Grandma and Grandpa.

Guess the historical figure
Who am I?
I am an American linguist and the developer of the Universal Grammar Theory (all humans share a common basic linguistic structure). Some people even call me "the father of modern linguistics", but I don’t like to brag. Oh yeah, and this past December I reached the magnificent age of 93 years.

“This is a family photo from 1959 with my grandma, aunt, cousin, and my two sisters. We spent a day in the heath and forest in Roden, Drenthe, the Netherlands. We are eating cherries, I think, and I am looking very pleased.”
