Quite a tribute! I feel like if I passed the Grandmother on the streets in heaven, I could point her out! Thanks for sharing.
The title enticed me in and I ended up smiling throughout this humorous story. Loved the grandmother's quirkiness: everyone needs a grandmother like that! Well done.
Hehe, I've gotten in trouble for laughing in moments like that, too. I enjoyed the glimpse of your grandmother!
I needed to smile and this article did just that. Well done, very well written.Catchy title too!
I want to be like your grandmother when I grow up! Where do you suppose she got that hula-dancer? On second thought, when I grow up...I want to write like you!!! This is great! Hurry up! Write some more!
I loved this from start to finish! Hope you win!

Great story, well written, and compelling to read. Your grandmother sounds a wise and interesting soul, and your writing a great tribute to her.

Ditto! The Title snared me! You definitely are another Lewis Grizzard! If you don't know of him...then you won't realize this is a Very High compliment! When LG passed away, the newspaper lost it's appeal for me. His Syndicated Column was what sold papers in the South! You have a great talent...keep up the good work!

You KILL me, Kenny! What a wonderful tribute - and an AMAZINGLY hilarious telling. Thanks for pointing us this way.
Ken, this was excellent. That's the kind of grandma I want to be...one that my grands will remember who loved life and loved THEM. Thanks for these precious memories. Hey, I think that's an old gospel quartet song... "Precious Memories...."
