Thursday Thirteen Ed. #59

September 20th, 2006

For my Thursday Thirteen I present:


13. “Depressed my ass! She needs to clean her house!”

12. “Who do you think you are, Little Miss Astor Butt?”

11. “Get on down here to dinner or I’m throwing it out.”

10. “Elvis. That poor boy just had too much too fast.”

9. “Patsy. Ol’ Patsy had her a hard life.”

8. “How are you, sugar?”

7. “Bacon! I love bacon. It is my downfall. But I’ve had to cut back — I only eat it every other day now.”

6. “Randy Travis — your grandpa just loved Randy Travis.”

5. “I made you some of that Ambrosia that you like so much.”

4. “I made your husband some of those Ranger Cookies that he likes so much.”

3. “Now I grew up during the Depression. I do not throw things away, like plastic bags. Your aunt always throws away plastic bags. And shops at Nordstrom. She refuses to shop anywhere but Nordstrom.”

2. “I do not drink. Not even a sip. But I do put wine in my fruitcake.”

1. “Men are like streetcars — there’s another one along every fifteen minutes. Miss one, catch the next.”

    I wanna hug your gramma. I love 13 & 12. Judging by #2, your gramma and my great-gramma would have gotten along fabulously…only my great-gramma would open the tin of fruit cake, pour rum or bourbon on it, cut a slice, close the tin…and then do the same thing the next day until the cake was gone and let me tell you that last slice was could have launched a rocket with a spark from a match. :P

    Happy TT!

    Your grandma rocks! She sounds a lot like my grandma and her mother. No drinking, but my great-granny could make a MEAN flaming rum cake!

    I loved that! Reminds me of my grandma – I think I will do a list of the things she always said next week! I lauged out loud, because at least three of the things on your list could be on mine too.

    #15. (When explaining why she’s pro-war): “You think Jesus didn’t have to go into the poolhall and crack a few heads together in his time?”

    Oh, please. I am painfully aware of any and all similarities. Everytime I start a sentence, “And, oh…!” HG teases me by calling me granny.
