Relative of the Week: Grandma Kelly

When I say fried chicken, fried okra, pineapple upside down cake, molasses cookies, banana cookies, red velvet cake, homemade noodles, what do you think of? Well, I think of one Martha Awl Kelly, Grandma Kelly, Marty Kelly, "Have a Party Marty," Silver Sneaker Scorner, Aerobics Attending, everyone's favorite cabana-singing woman. Here she is:Yesterday we spent a lot of time in the car with GK. Stella was sung to and snuggled and ga-ga'ed over. She loves the attention as long as you don't get all up in her grill. Because if you do, she summons The Lip in order to repulse your love attack! She's got boundaries, people. Respect them. And yes, she is "always eating." And yes, she's been known to "sleep a lot." And on ocassion she wants nothing to do with your coffee breath and schmoopy talk, but it's nothing personal.
