This is my Grandma. Here is her quote “Hootie, Hootie, Hootie.”
What does it mean? Who knows. She said it on an exhale, usually kind of tired and sometimes followed by, “It’s a great old world if you don’t weaken.” The hootie was more cheerful though. It’s a chance to pause and review an event, or a meal after the dishes are finished and you finally get to sit down, as in phew, glad that’s done.
She read the newspaper in bed at the end of the day with her slippers on while I dragged all of the canned goods out of the bottom cupboard and stacked them on a bench so we could play Store. Hahaha, good grief I was destined for Trader Joe’s at five years old.
She was my goddess Grandma and I followed her like a little shadow and pretended I was her favorite.
Yep. Hootie hootie hootie, it’s a great old world if you don’t weaken.
