Thanks for sharing Grandma's revenge.
In my case, can we call it mothers revenge???

Going Like Sixty

That's cute - an inspiration.

Thanks, Joy, just what I needed today!

Hi Joy!

Wow! Simply love this poem.

"When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green beans or salad or meat.
I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry...I'll run...if I'm able."
I recalled exasperated moments with mum...wishing I could chuckle that off today!

This is too cute. Guess what kind of greeting I'm sending to my kids this Christmas -- this very threat and maybe I'll send them a Christmas gift containing gayly wrapped p.j.'s, soft slippers in my size, and a new tooth brush that says, "please store in a safe place until I get there." Sounds like a lovely plan to me.

Dear Joy ~~ Wonderful post that I have read before, but it is such a good one. I liked the "if I can run"
bit. Great idea to send a copy to all our kids for Christmas. Thanks for the idea Roberta S. Hope al is well with you my friend. Have a
wonderful weekend. Love, Merle.

Now I understand better why you were happy to exchange visits!
I think your nickname should be Exuberant Gran or something - but that's too long. Joy is one of my favourite names, by the way.
The poem is great, too. Are you familiar with A.A. Milne's poems Now We are Six? Someone did a spoof called Now We are Sixty which has a bit the same tone as the poem you quoted here.

Oops! i strayed over by accident from Going Like Sixty's blog - that's why the beginning of the above must seem like double Dutch to you!
Visit me?

Sounds like a great plan! Thanks for sharing.

Oh, yes. We plan to sell our home, move into a camper van and park outside the children's homes in turn. 'Hi, we've come to visit!!!'

This is just too cute not to "borrow." Now if you will excuse me, I have to go pack! Hehehehehe, only kidding.
