Sandy McIntosh says that if his old Mother-In-Law had held on for a few more years, I would have made her eat her words. Instead, the old Bat had to go and die on us at the nursing home where I had them exercising her everyday, even after hours after she died.
I told the wife that she would look trimmer and better in her coffin and not so stiff.
I know it sounds bad to really hate the old gal but she tried every trick in the book to get Gladys not to marry a "No Account Bum" and "A Lifetime Drunk You Will Never Get To Change"!
Well, I wish she were here at least for a short while, maybe 15 minutes, to see that she was wrong.
Time for my call. "Hello, this the Eddison Funeral Home on Maple Street?"
"Yes it is."
"Is Old Lady McIntosh still there?"
"No, Joffree, we buried her two weeks ago."
"I know it. I just love to hear you say it."
So Gladys will never get me changed? Old Lady you were wrong. It turned out to be wrong after all these years when you told your daughter she'd never change me. That was 45 years ago, and she just got through changing me for the second time today.
Whoops! Looks like I done done the Hat trick!
