She was the second-last of seven or eight Disney grandma like a normal grandma only more awesome minnie shirt, so she got her first pair of “nylons” for her 16th birthday or her church confirmation or something like that. She was already an adult, she’d left school in tenth grade and had a job. But asking about life between the wars, she told me about getting into serious trouble when she was 10 – 12 years old. mHer beloved, idolized older brother, 22 – 24 years old at the time, came home from the mines and brought along a crew of friends. He was courting a woman from a “prestigious” family and was trying to impress. My Gran felt that they should be offered refreshments, but there wasn’t much in the pantry. So she sliced the family’s potatoes for the week really thin, and fried them in oil till they were crisp. She served these things salted. I sort of gathered that she was tickled pink at the compliments her ouboet (older brother) received from his affluent “friends”. I assume someone else bought drinks. My gran did not get any recognition at all, she was not even invited to this brother’s wedding to that girlfriend, because Gran was below the bride’s family’s “station”. But my Gran was pretty chuffed to tell me she had independently invented Lay’s crisps in the early 40’s, even though she got her hide tanned for using up all the available vegetables to help her brother impress his date. Fifty years later, my gran was supporting that brother and his (same) wife when they died within months of each other. I spent my last years in high school living in the house Gran had originally bought for them, after listening to their daughters bitch about who had stolen Mom’s diamond ring out of the safe. The son took his sisters to task, and said “Everyone empty their wallets now. Auntie <my Gran> has paid for this funeral and we are going to contribute.”

The most memorable thing my dad told me was about Angola border duty in the late 70’s or early 80’s. (Serious racist Apartheid South Africa conscription. My dad was by no means forced, he was ‘doing his duty’ to ‘preserve the Afrikaner way of life’ in the ‘face of the communists’). He and a buddy were tasked with guarding a school run by sympathizers from the other side of the river. Everything was quiet, when two donkeys strolled into the school premises. My dad said that the sound of donkeys mating was the funniest thing he’d ever heard. Since we were sitting on my rural porch, listening to an excited donkey on a neighbour’s premises, at the time, I believed him. I still laugh when I hear a titillated donkey.What you should do is make an effort to hear all the amazing things your grandma can tell you, if only she had enough time and enough encouragement and enough non-judgmental love. Write them down, if you can, I regret not keeping a journal of my Gran’s stories those last two years.
