This is a question Grandparents

My awesome grandad flew in Wellingtons in the war. Damn, those shortages were terrible. Tell us about brilliant-stroke-rubbish grandparents.

Always look on the bright side.
When I was very small, both my parents worked, so my Nan used to come and pick me up from school.

I remember very clearly coming out of the gate one day and looking for her only to see my Granddad instead. Before I knew it I was in hysterics, crying my eyes out inconsolably and not letting him hug me or comfort me before eventually managing to blurt out "Nanny's Dead"

She wasn't, she was at home making dinner. God I was a pessimistic child.

God you miserable little shit.
I bet it served you right when she did die (is she dead?).

They don't tend to mess about at the crem.

I meant on bonfire night.
She wasn't very mobile so we confused her for the guy.

A lot of people did
Back in those days it was "Any hole's a goal" and you couldn't be too choosy. I heard your grandad was pleasantly surprised on their wedding night.

I may be sailing too close to the edge with this level of humour...sorry

You're fine.
I don't come to B3ta to get all uppity and offended at bad taste jokes.

I leave that to others.
