Grandma Says..

Observations and views from a different set of eyes

About Grandma Says…

This blog is my attempt to express my views, observations and thoughts on just about any subject that tickles my fancy. I live in Florida, am on Social Security (at last) and am primary caregiver for my SO. Blogging is the road to sanity for me!

If I make you laugh, make you tear-up, make you think or even make you mad, then I have accomplished my goal.  Follow me on my journey through the scary, and usually interesting thoughts that occupy this old noggin.  You might like the ride!

    I must admit, what first got my attention with your blog was your profile picture. “Wizard of Oz” is by far my favorite movie and has been ever since I was a little girl. It was our family’s annual tradition to watch it. On a different note, I’m truly enjoying your point of view and your straight forward posts.

    • Thank you for your kind words. They are worth a million to me! The Wiz is also one of my favs and since I came up with the “Cranky” username..the picture just seemed to fit right in!
