“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?
