NANNIE'S SHARP WIT!


My sweet MIL--or Nannie as we affectionately call her---can be quite the card! She has been suffering from a form of dementia for more than 10 years----but fortunately her memory is not affected nor her wit-at times.


Pappaw just celebrated his 90th birthday and we had a BIG party for him. The day before the party was actually his birthday and one of my sweet SIL's went by to see them. Pappaw has the propensity to retell "His Stories" MANY times. His memory has been affected by diminished blood flow caused by heart disease---and of course the fact that he is 90-SO we hear the same stories over and over and over.


While Kathy was there visiting with her daughter, Pappaw launches off into one of his stories and Brooke is listening. Nannie looks at Kathy and says, "If he starts that tomorrow, I think I'll just evaporate." LOL--BIG TIME!!!! I often say "Beam me up" but I've never thought about evaporating. LOVE HER WIT!
