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.

My Granddad is 91.
He and my Granny lived in a council house in Birmingham all their lives and were pretty much penniless- or so we thought. The only holiday they ever had was the odd coach trip to Weston Super Mare. It wasn't until my Granny passed away that we found out she had been salting away money for decades, and her bank account ran into six figures.

They "had" to get married (my dad was born somewhat less than 9 months after they did) and they hated each other. I'm sure she deliberately hid the money so he couldn't have any fun- a proper case of cutting her nose off to spite her face. She may have been money savvy but unfortunately for her she forgot that he would inherit the lot when she pegged it.

He now spends at least 8 months of the year in a bar San Fransico and in a five star hotel in Hawaii. He spends a large amount of money on Chivas Regal. He had a 42 year old girlfriend in Hawaii but he dumped her because she was too possessive. I'm sure my Granny is turning in her grave.
