Five generations of Beaupre women live in Virginia City, Nevada—including 2-month-old Alyssa Beaupre and her 99-year-old great-great-grandmother Marjorie "Mimiere" Tanner. Marjorie recently gave the younger women in her family some sound advice: "The answer to a long marriage is a long affair."
For Mimiere, that was "Nick," with whom she carried on an affair for 25 years. He looks down at them from the wall in a drawing Heather [Beaupre] believes was done by her grandmother. She doesn't know who tore it in half, but she pieced it back together and put it in a frame.
"When I showed it to her, she said his name, even though she often forgets family members' names," Heather said. [Link]
