In Appalachia Grannies are famous for their healing, cooking, sewing, gardening, and for their sometimes quirky ways and funny sayings. I grew up with a dear sweet Granny named Gazzie. She fit the bill for the typical Granny characteristics. Gazzie was famous for her Sunday dinners with potatoes shaped like boats, her biscuits, her stick candy and her crocheting. She was also someone who didn’t put up with nonsense and showed no pity for anyone who hurt those she loved.
My girls are fortunate to have a Granny too. Their Granny (Gazzie’s youngest daughter) is famous for her green beans, crocheting, gardening, sewing, and for her strange, ridiculous, funny and precious sayings. As I post some of both my Granny’s sayings and quirky ways of doing things I hope you too will post things about your Granny.
