When Grandma J moved to Texas, she figured she'd get a life of her own, complete with new people in her life who mirror some that she left behind in California.

Of course, her middle daughter and family would be her core...and of course their paths would cross throughout the village.

You know what I mean, the butcher will know Grandma J wants her rump roasted, and her Middle Daughter wants hers ground.

The truant officer school will call Grandma J when the grandkids are in lock down sick, blah, blah, blah.

And of course, Grandma J goes to the same nail salon as her Middle Daughter. Remember Michelle #4? The Nail Specialist who does the best pedicures in the world? Well, evidently a whole lot of girl talk goes on between Middle Daughter and Michelle #4.

Yesterday Grandma J decided to get a she calls ahead because she likes "the works" and the works is named after Michelle's called "The Number Four". The Number Four involves hot rocks and hot towel wraps along with deep tissue massage and secret sauce.

During the exfoliating process Michelle starts asking Grandma J about
noodles.....and she asks why Phillip Johnny Bob never comes to the salon. Yep...busted blogger. Then she laughs about the whole brouhaha on Grandma J's blog about her fat feet. Evidently Michelle took three days off work the time to read Grandma J's whole blog....all 442 entries, and twelve comments.

Then she decides to take a picture of Grandma J's feet to dispel any terminal fat foot disease worries...because according to Michelle, it's all about the angle that you take the picture from.....Ummm isn't this supposed to be a picture of my feet?

Too FUNNY! "The works" is named after Michele? She must be very proud - I certainly hope she reads this!

I'm laughing too hard to leave a comment!!!

Fat feet run in my family. They are "affectionately" called "Fred Flintstone Feet" by others. We've learned to love them...;)

Grandma J: This one needs to be listed as one of your best. Seriously. Special sauce? Lawdy that's some funny stuff.

Hi Grandma J - I am also Grandma J, but really Grandma's House but my name is Jean. You are so funny because you sorta mirror my life sorta. We've been trying to escape and be alone - me and my hubby, but I prayed to God a long time ago for a close family and they haven't left yet, even raised a grandson, after 45 years of marriage - they're still here, but we have a plan. Thanks for the Pedicure story, its great to have that sort of professional in the family. Oh, what is Special Sauce?

Love your blog too.

For a second I thought you were wearing blue leggings under your black skirt and I was going to tell you that you were SO cool! I have kind of been wanting to wear leggings lately. I have no idea why since my legs look like sausages...

But back to you. I LOVE that picture. You are so pretty and your feet look fantastic. I think Michelle is cool if she read your whole blog.
