Saving up her Social Security for pole dancing lessons

Have you met my 80-something MIL?

She not only let her granddaughter 'do' her up in the blond hair extensions, she specially requested the purple accent piece to coordinate with her Hugh Hefner jammies, which she wears so she can slip right away if FIL tries to grab her in bed.

I have a feeling this one will be on her Facebook by noon:

All this happened shortly after we abandoned her at Applebee's.

Yep, she was left standing on the sidewalk while her husband and son snuck out the CarsideToGo door. They assumed she was riding home with Omega and me. But we had stops to make.

Luckily her son picked up on the discrepancy a short while later and Omega zipped back to collect her before the authorities became involved.

She wasn't worried. She said she planned to call someone when it got dark.

Warning: Do not invite this woman to your home if you are struggling with bladder control.

She is having way more fun than alot of people I know who are half her age. Not me! Just some of the rif raff who slip by my world sometimes.

That is HYSTERICAL! I actually came over from a comment you left somewhere else...you asked someone if 'they were gonna go all Repulican...'. I laughed so hard and decided I had to pop over here and read your blog. Nice to 'meet' ya! :)

Oh My!!!! That's one hot Grandmomma!! Hope you all get to enjoy one another for as long as possible. I have to agree with whoever said it first up there. I hope I'm that kind of grandmomma one day . . . far, far, far into the future!

Deedee said...

Very cool! May I be such a hot ticket when I reach her age!

Kimberly said...

How kewl it is that not only Grandma is having a blast but Omega is having just as much fun...at least it appears that way. That's a great memory being created right there! Create great memories so you can cherish them later.

And, btw Jane, I'd LOVE to be left at Applebee's, at least long enough to get one of those wonderfully warm and sinful Blond Brownies with walnuts, vanilla ice cream & warm vanilla sauce! UUUMMMMMMMMMM.....

Glad you get a kick out of your MIL.
Seriously, she has a Facebook? My 80+ mother can barely work the remote, much less a computer.

Lisa said...

She has great skin. She needs to start a blog and let us in on her secrets.
