She's Great, Grandma

A few of us were talking over dinner last night, comparing family trees and whatnot, and I was trying to count how many cousins I had, and how many kids they all had. I know it's quite a brood, but couldn't quite come up with a concrete number.

Well, you can't really Google such information, but you can Grandma it, so I called Bunny (yup, that's what she's been called since she was a girl), my 87 year old grandmother.

"Hey Grandma, whatcha doing?"

"Oh hi Bobby, I'm just sitting at the computer playing Freecell."

She kills me.

We exchanged the usual catch-up information, and then she informed me that from her 5 children, she has 21 grandkids, 31 great grandkids, and 1 great great grandchild. That's a lot of breeding.

She asked where I was off to next, and I told her London tonight for a week of work. Not to be outdone (ever), she's heading to Florida for a week at the end of the month before it gets too hot.

"Okay, grandma, I'll let you get back to your game. I love you, you be good."

"Well I don't have much choice, do I?"

"Sweetie, you've always got a choice."

"Let's just say I don't have much of an opportunity anymore."

Did I mention she kills me?

Karen -- take your Grandma out and let her get into some trouble.
