I Hope I Don't Get in Trouble for This

Since The Granddaughter is away and there is absolutely nothing else to do, it is the perfect time to let you into our world a little deeper. Granny and I may live rather ordinary lives, but that doesn't mean there isn't anything interesting to share.

Here are some ten interesting facts about Granny to delight and amuse you:
  • She prefers her soda without ice.
  • In order to locate Granny in a crowd, I look for children. She will be nearby.
  • If possible, she would go barefoot every day of her life. I had to convince her to wear shoes to our wedding.
  • Granny has never finished the last bite of a meal or the last drink of a beverage. Ever.
  • If you ever need help, Granny will be there for you.
  • She likes the Los Angeles Lakers, but hates Kobe.
  • The minute I get myself settled in bed, Granny will inevitably ask--very sweetly--if I would please get her a piece of fruit, some dessert or something to drink.
  • Granny's favorite summer snack is tomatoes and cucumbers with salt, pepper and vinegar.
  • She enjoys walking along the beach looking for sand dollars.
  • After more than eight years, Granny's dark brown eyes still have the power to enchant me.
There's more, of course, but this will have to do. Dinner is ready and the baseball game is coming on!

Awwwww. Now that's sweet. How much beer did you drink to write this post?

sounds almost, near-enough? perfect too me. All the goodies derived from good stalk...yes, I said STALK (not stock). Giving thanks she enchants you.

Cate Subrosa said...

Aw, you guys. Now, what is a sand dollar?

That last one will get you out of any hot water the rest of the post might have got you into. Nice list. I don't like ice in my soda either.

T-shirt--That's what I keep telling her, but I'm not sure she believes me.

jen mck--None, actually. It came directly from that chunk of granite I call a heart.

Anon--She's almost as perfect as I am.

Cate--I'll do a sand dollar post. A picture is easier, but essentially, it is the skeleton of a sea creature.

g-man--I hope!
