 LEST WE FORGET by Granny Annie


"This gall-darn machine is simply a work of fiction" Granddad muttered.  "I can't figure out the skulduggery it was created to perform."


"It's a telephone!" the grandchildren all responded delightfully. "We promise it is not a trap. Listen carefully and you can hear Grandma."

 

Granddad groaned in fear as he moved the handset to his ear.  Soon as he heard a soft whispering "Jeremiah, is that you dear?"  Grandma Myrtle was trying to coax her husband to speak into this long forgotten invention.


Jeremiah threw the phone into the corner.  He was not deft in his selection of ways to rid himself of the device.  That could not have been Myrtle talking to him.  She was out in the fertile field under her umbrella completing the Fall picking.  He could see her as plain as day.


The family prayed that Granddad would be better once Grandma could come back from the hospital. She was the only one who could calm him.

OLIVIA'S PLIGHT by Granny Annie


The slippers were crocodile and she rejected them as unsuitable. The day would never come when Olivia would wear any animal. She left the ladies department in a huff and was heading straight for home. She didn't even stop to look at the assortment of cards on the wall at the exit door. Suddenly a stern voice stopped Olivia. Buzzers and bells sounded and it was a shock of her life. The security guard appeared in front of her and examined both of her feet. “Where do you think you are going with those?” and he pointed to her feet. She had failed to remove the slippers she had tried on and was now trying to explain. The security guard would not listen and escorted a shamed Olivia to the office where he called the police.

DO NOT LOOK IF YOU ARE QUEASY

 Here is my removed hip ball.  See the bone spurs.  No wonder I hurt so badly before the surgery.




Here is the x-ray of my new smooth hip in place.


Can you believe that after two weeks, I am up and going.  My only restrictions are not to lift more than 5 pounds for another few weeks and to be sure and walk at least every hour...and yes, not to fall down.

WOODS TREASURE by Granny Annie

Three young boys ran with speed back to Granny and Grandpa's.

It was their first exploration of the grandparent's new country home.

Trees, grass, fields and animals surrounded the magical place. These youngsters loved the freedom of exploring. Now the boys had news to share of their wanderings.

"We have found a secret house in the woods." they shouted. "It is so tiny we believe it is a house for elves."

"Elves you say?" their granddad ask.  "Why do  you believe that?"

With wide eyes and open mouths the boys exclaimed that they believed they heard rustling in the grass and knew it was the elves running away.

The grandparents were delighted.  Grandpa winked at Grandma, proud of the treasure he had built and hidden for the boys to find.
