My grandmother, who I am close with and value deeply, is in her 90s and still sharp as a tack. What questions should I ask her about her life?

Lately I've had this nagging feeling that I don't have much time left to learn more about her adventures, the experiences she's had living through historic events, or the perspective she's gained from spending close to a century on this planet. I would like start recording some of her memories and thoughts on life.
I don't really know where to start, and would love to hear ideas from other Mefites about good questions or topics I shouldn't forget. What amazing things have you learned from your grandparents?
