Little Sally is only seven years old, so she don't remember like me how bad it was and how everyone was cryin' and hurtin' and not knowin' what to do or where to go or even what to think,   It was 13 years ago on 9/11, and Granny held those babies close since everyone was scared.  And I had to tell Sally something you shouldn't have to tell a child, how bad things happen to people and how it's hard to understand.

Exercise your body not your mouth so much, says Granny

"Are you going to exercise with us?" she asked.  They were all sitting in the swimming pool right by the steps and talkin' stink about Brandy who wasn't even there to defend herself.

Queen Elizabeth gets scolding from Granny about changing diapers and real work

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip
"What in tarnation are you doing calling me at this hour of the morning?  Can't you tell time?  It's early over here, and Granny needs her sleep. Queen who?  You're gonna be a great-granny again, you say?  Well, don't that beat all.  I don't call folks in the wee hours like this just to let them know there's another baby on the way, even if I was the Queen of England like you says you is.  Besides you're one of my grandbabies yourself, you know, so I hope you take my advice since this Granny has more babies than you will ever have."
