When I did a post recently about my dad, and mentioned that my grandma worked, a blogger friend of mine, ElleBee, left a great comment regarding a joke that her family loved to tell about her grandma’s job.
. . . When I was very young, [Grandma] worked at Sheldon’s/Mepps, who made … fishing lures. She stripped the squirrel tails and fastened the lures to hooks. The family joke was that … Grandma was “a hooker and a stripper”!
Thank you, ElleBee for sharing a story that made both Hubby and me laugh out loud. I bet your family never got tired of telling that story and teasing Grandma about it!
btw, I’m grossed out by the squirrel part. But, it’s still a very funny story!
