A Grandmother’s Advice #1LinerWeds

Fasten your seatbelts because, yes, this is from MY grandmother.

Sometimes, when someone would say goodbye to her, my dear old gray-headed granny’s parting words were,

Be good; if you can’t be good, be careful; if you can’t be careful, name it after me.

My dear old gray-headed granny was a red-hot chili pepper.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
