  •  Do know any Scandinavian Grandmothers? (4.00)
    They wouldn't be outside protesting.  They'd wreck the place.

    A friends (Norwegian) grandmother turned 100 during Ronnie's first term.  The normal practice is for the President to call and congratulate them.  Her response was, "I didn't live to be 100 in order to have to talk to that son-of-a-bitch!"

    During the Panic of 1902 my Swedish grandfolks lost their farm due to failure to make the bank payment.  As the mortgage was on the land and the papers were served on Friday when the bank people came on Monday to take possession they were looking at bare ground.  Over the weekend the men moved all buildings while the women removed the fencing, fence posts, and plowed that years crop under!

    When I was a boy the same grandmother, on St. Lucia's Day, would come in, bearing coffee and St. Lucia cookies to wake me.  (Doesn't everybody celebrate St. Lucia's Day?)  If I didn't awake fast enough to suit her she would lean her head so hot wax from the candles would drop on my face.

    NEVER mess with someone wearing rosemal'ed eyeglasses.
