Tattle Tales by Granny #3


Granny on Fishing

“You ain’t goin’ catch no fish, if you don’t spit on your worm first. And you gotta’ hold yer mouth right, too!” I spent hours practicing spitting and trying to make my mouth look like Granny’s!

Granny on Driving
The police finally took Granny’s driver’s licence away as she was such a hazard on the road. She bought a riding lawn mower and ran it into her trailer knocking it off its supports. Grandpa got rid of the lawnmower to the relief of everyone. Granny never did forgive him.

Granny on Marriage

“I believe in marriage–that’s why I got married seven times!” She said that didn’t really count “’cause I married two of the fellows twice!” When my daughter asked her why, she thought a bit, then said, “Well, honey, I don’t rightly know…just stupid, I guess!”

Granny’s Favorite Quote

I treat each day as my last; one day I’m gonna’ be right.

Granny on Remembering

Everyone tells me that I’m forgetful, but it ain’t true. But I did have amnesia once…or was it twice?

      Dear Chis and Jo,
      I am so glad you like them. My grandmother was very special and I am enjoying digging up these fun things she did and said. Not everything will be from her but many are. When I first decided to do an inspirational blog, I was not sure there was a place for humor. But Children’s Wisdom in Rainforest News has gotten so popular, that I decided to test out Tattle Tales. My feeling is that humor, like music, is inspirational…so why not?
      Thanks for your visit and feedback!
