Many years ago when I lived with my parents every Sunday afternoon at 4 o’clock the phone would ring and the voice at the other end of the line would ask, “Any news?” The woman’s name was Jasper and she wrote a column for our hometown newspaper. The column was always full of things like where people ate dinner, a list of folks who were sick, and any exciting social events she might know of (lol). Once she wrote something about my mother’s hair that went something like this, “Snow flakes must have come early this year as Shirley Bell’s hair is now frosted. It is as lovely as a winter snow.”
Mom was not pleased.
Anyway, today I’m sharing a random news story about a nana from Pennsylvania and thought you might have some you want to share. So as Jasper once said, “Any news?” If so be sure and send it in. We love hearing from visitors!
A Very Naughty Nana
A Pennsylvania woman who denied leaving her 8-year-old granddaughter behind with stolen goods was ordered to stand trial on shoplifting charges. Elaine Weimer, 50, was ordered to stand trial on Wednesday on charges of retail theft, endangering the welfare of a child, and corruption of minors.
The girl was not charged and told state police her grandmother told her “to get stuff for her grandmother and her grandmother made her hold the bags.”
Obviously not all nanas are nice!
