Visiting the Grandparents

Once upon a time, a visit from grandparents from another province would have involved a lengthy voyage by car (or horse, before that). More recently, the airplane reduced the time requirements for the trip. These days, even the voyage is optional.

Christophe and Pierrette are visiting with Pierrette's parents (memere and pepere) in Moncton via Skype, the internet, and a MacBook:
Earlier today, Pierrette and Christophe spent some time with his great-grandmother (grand-memere) and great-aunt. One can only imagine how Christophe and his children will visit with us, at a remove.
