My grandma is in the hospital slipping away right now, so I'm dedicating a post to her.
She is my mom's mother. She's 92 years old, having had my mom when she was in her late 40's.
She taught me to make biscuits and gravy and the best spaghetti known to man.
These are the things that remind me of her.
All her pictures of when she was younger totally look like Vivien Leigh.
She used to teach us moonshine songs with cusswords in them, which always made my dad mad. haha
She allllways went to an old lady hair parlor once a week to get her hair "set" or permed I guess...
Grew up in a coal mining town in west virgina
Played guitar and sang hymns and mountain music
taught me to always make cornbread in an iron skillet
She always smelled like Jovan White Musk
She loves the Smokies, but who doesn't?
She was a Pastor's wife but never EVER call her "Sister Zink" or she will cuss at you.
We always called her memaw.
