I recall hearing of one incident when someone thought he was gonna’ hurt someone my gramma’ cared about. That was one thing. Once you found your way into Gramma’s heart, Outsiders did not have the option of saying or doing anything that Gramma’ perceived as ugly.
Anyway, this outsider thought that he was gonna’ hurt someone whom my gramma’ cared about. When she threw that pistol over her arm for balance, he laughed and said she didn’t have the nerve to pull the trigger. In fact, he said that just before she pulled the trigger and shot a hole in his shirt, so close that he felt the air whistle by as the bullet whizzed through. See, that was another thing that my gramma’ didn’t take kindly to; a dare.
Do you know some of the colorful stories from your family’s past? I do hope you write them down so they won’t be forgotten. Its a shame to realize how many memorable incidents have been forgotten because no one wrote them down.
