1. Before you get in the car to go somewhere, make sure you’re wearing a good pair of underwear with no holes in them. You never know when you might get in an accident and they have to cut your clothes off of you.
2. Don’t sleep in the nude. You never know when your house might catch fire in the middle of the night.

One grandma told me, “Clean as you go,” and “Chin up, shoulders back.” (She was short like me.) The other grandma told me “Count your blessings.” All that advice was good.😃❤
Thkse are wonderful nuggets of advice, Tonya! 💖💐🌹🦋
Always keep a quarter in your pocket or sock in case you need to make an emergency call. Funny now that we all have personal cell phones! LOL
LOLOL Very wise advise indeed. I never heard of that one but I’m glad you told me! Love this! <3
LOL…. I got the same advice from my mother. ( Except it’s about an earthquake in the middle of the night.)
Gotcha! And it could be anything- a fire, earthquake, or tornado. 😀
Make sure your clothes hangars all line up in the same direction, so your clothes will be easier to grab in a fire.
That’s a good one too! 😀 Or at least have your underwear lying nearby so that you won’t have to go completely naked! 😀 😀 😀
My favorites from my grandma: Never go to bed mad. Do the thing for procrastinating becomes a habit.
Very wise advise. My husband told him that his grandma used to tell him that too. <3
“Don’t eat refrozen ice cream” is one that I remember.
Hahahaha! Now that you mention it, I remember that advice too! And I actually found that out the hard way when I was a kid- yuck!!!
My grandmother told me the same as your grandmother told you.
Awesome, girl! Our grannies were some wise women! I remember when my grandmother told me and my siblings, we just fell out laughing! She had a way of making it fun! 😀
i don’t remember those but my mom did say “can you just where underwear… ?” i still don’t lol! 😱
Bahahahahaha! 🤣😂🤣😂 I love this, Cindy! 😜
more stories where that one came from…. lol 🤣
I can just imagine! Grandmothers are a hoot! 😂🤣😂🤣
It is sooo true! I’ll clue you in if I ever do a post on it! 🤣
Looking forward to it! 💖💐🦋
I’ll have to try and rememember.. thanks. a fun Fri Yay or omg Fri Yay,,. 🤣🤣🤣
Cooool! 😎😎😎 I’m looking forward to Fri-Yay! 😃
MEEE too! 💖💖🌈
Love this ! Very funny!
Thank you so much, Rashida! 😀
Thanks for sharing 👍
I am still laughing 😂😂
😀 You’re welcome! I’m glad you got some chuckles out of it!
My grandmother didn’t impart great words of wisdom but loads of stories about how she had to walk three miles to school every day, sometimes in the snow.
Oh, my goodness! Both my grandmothers did that too! It seems they don’t make em’ like our grandparents anymore! The younger generations couldn’t handle what our grandparents could! 😀
That’s so true!
My grandmother says that we should not leave the milk Tumblr near beds at late night or else the lizard will come and lick out faces and specifically lips…I know doesn’t make sense according to your blog…but seriously creppy….🤣
Bahahaha! I’m loving this! Thank you for commenting and sharing your experiences! 😀
Your welcome 🎉
Some creepy advice, dear Cherie! But older women are usually wise women and they know what they are talking about. Life’s experiences have taught them.
Absolutely! My grandmothers told us this when we were kids and we just fell out laughing! They were a hoot! 😀
Often children laugh about their grandmothers. Later, when they have reached grandmother’s age, they start thinking twice, and they discover the formerly hidden wisdom.
Oh, sweetie, we weren’t laughing at her! We were laughing with her because she was laughing too when she said it. Both my grandmothers had a flair for making everything entertaining! I’m very blessed to have had grandmothers who were comediennes! It was all in good fun.<3
I unfollowed you a long time ago, you did not even notice that because you are stupid as a donkey.
😂🤣😂🤣 And yet, here you are again. Get a shrink, get help, and get a life!
Chérie in her chateau. What a dumb wannabe French whore. The most stupid US cow on the internet. The whole blog full of dumb stuff, no wonder people are mobbing you. You deserve it. Au revoir Chérie. Keep pissing nonsense about your grandma. You probably inherited her idiocy. It seems to be genetic.
😂🤣😂🤣 You’re only exposing yourself to be a bully. Please keep talking. I love exposing bullies like you. It’ so fun. 😜
I remember my maternal grandmother telling a story about when she was growing up. It wasn’t funny at the time it happened but after everyone knew they were okay, the nude part was funny later. There was a couple living down the street and their house caught fire. When the fire brigade showed up, the couple were hiding in the bushes and they wouldn’t come out because they were starkers! The firemen had to throw them a blanket before they’d come out! LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!
Absolutely funny and stitchy pieces of advice. 😀👏
Thank you so much!
You’re most welcome
Made me think about what my mum always advised. It was pretty much the same thing.
Yep! I think a lot of parents and grandparents gave their kids that advice! 😀 Parents and grandparents definitely know what they’re talking about. We may not realize it when we’re kids and think we know everything! But we get it later!
My grandma even added that the nurses who cut you out of your clothes will get behind closed doors and talk about the holes in your drawers! LOLOLOL That was enough to embarrass us into making sure we had good underpants on under our clothes! 😀
Wear shoes while driving because your foot could cramp! To this day I never drive barefoot! Hugs, C
Wow! I heard something similar. But instead of your foot cramping up, we were told that we’d get a foot caught under the pedals. I hadn’t thought of that until you mentioned it! Thank you so much for bringing back a wonderful memory! 💖💐🌹
I guess grandmothers, and mothers are the same everywhere, in my younger days I heard similar advice!🤣
I agree! They’re the best! 💖💐🌹
Awwwww grandma! 🤗 Great advice and such wise women! 🤣😆😄😅😂
Absolutely, Kym! Grandma’s are so precious! I miss both of them very much. 💖💐🌹
I concur girlfriend. But they taught us well sistah!!! 👵🏼👏🏼👴🏽🙌🏼👩🏽🦳
They sure did! 💖💐🌹🕊
Too cute! Love these! Grandma’s sayings weren’t near as cute as the way she just talked, in general. She used ol’ Ozark hillbilly talk and us girls would giggle. She’d say, “You girls are just a bunch of giggle boxes!” She did call us her little “pooters” and we’d laugh out loud. My Dad’s mom, Grandma Hale, told me when you reach 70 you can say whatever you want. 💛🤍😊
Thank you for this, Karla! I love your story about your grandmothers! It sounds like they were a hoot! The little pooters part made me LOL! 🤣😂🤣🤣
Tee hee! You’re welcome! She was a pastor’s wife and she had no idea of the words she’d make up. It was beyond precious! 💕😊😂
My grandmother thought Rolaids was a cure all now matter what was wrong she would give us a Rolaids and tell us it will made us feel better lol So now I joke with my sons and my husband about it lol
Lol! I like that! 😂🤣 Grandmothers leave some memories you can laugh about for the rest of your days!
I agree and she was always such a wonderful loving grandmother always hugging us I was blessed.
Me grandmothers were that way too! They always spoiled us with love and affection. They’re no longer with us now. My Uma died in 2005 and my Grandma died in 2013. They left some awesome memories! 💖💐🌹😊
It’s hard to not having them anymore but yes we will always have our memories <3
Yes it is. 🕊
when angry, check if you are hungry
My grandmother told me: 1. Pretty dishes don’t guarantee a good meal. 2. It is as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor one – pick the rich one. 3. Take every opportunity to shower with your husband – it’s fun! 4. You can’t make a silk purse from a sows ear. It took me a longtime to figure out #1 and 4… but they are very good and sound advice!
Love these little nuggets, Valerie! They’re not only tried and true, but they proved a small helping of humor too. 💖😁
My grandma told me to ” Drink water while sitting” and ” Whenever worship Goddess Durga , tie up Your hair ( never worship Goddess Durga in open hair) 🙂 I hope you Know about Goddess Durga. 😅
I’m afraid I don’t unfortunately. But I’m intrigued and will look it up. Thank you for your lovely comment. 😍
This post is awesome, hilarious, but wise and makes sense. Three cheers for Grandma. 😊😊
You’re most welcome. And thank you for your kindness, dear! 💖
Um, don’t know if this made the comments anywhere, but if you get in an accident bad enough they have to cut you out, you’re going to soil yourself entirely. My mom was a nurse… that you’re wearing underwear with holes in them will be the last thing on the mind of anyone caring for you. Be comfortable first.
You’re absolutely right- you won’t care. All you’ll care about is pain relief because Ive been in a bad car wreck and it was hell- two months in the hospital and at Christmas time to boot. But some if those nurses will surely talk about it later. It’s shameful but true.
I don’t quite know what you’re referring to in terms of nurses “talking about it later”. My mom told me general stories about things she experienced but the only story she went into detail about was the little boy who died of cancer that she cared for before he died, just before I was born. Everything else was generalities about real life vs the Hollywood version of what happens, or stories about what not to do – like don’t ride a lawnmower with the blades engaged because she has to care for kids whose father dropped them beneath the deck and it’s just not worth it… never names, never details. I don’t know of any nurses who would get into detail, mainly out of common decency, but also to protect their job. You have to be a special kind of person to care for others. Jerks get through, but rarely last in that profession.
I didn’t say ALL nurses. I said SOME nurses! I worked in the medical field, Jim. I knew some nurses who were bullies and YES! They talked about that among themselves. They also bullied the good nurses, Jim! This has nothing to do with your mother. It isn’t about her and I’m not painting all nurses with one brush. I’ve known some fine nurses but I’ve known others who were cliquey. There are rotten apples in every profession! Thank you!
Cherie, there are rotten people and bullies everywhere. None of them had anything to do with my comment. I was simply wondering why you took it there. It’s all good, though. I’ll leave it alone.
Wise grandmothers! My grandmother was against the idea of handing us umbrellas lest we lose it and bring bad luck upon us. So get wet rather than get unlucky was her mantra.
Wow! I knew a few that did that too. I knew another who made you take your shoes off at the door when she’d gotten through sweeping and I don’t blame her- it was like that back in those days. 😊🤗
“Child, keep your life straight. Or the years will make it lean like a tired, old barn.”
Good quote from your grandmother, David! I love it! <3 And she was right!
It is better to wear no under wears before accidents 🙂
Well, that could be one way to solve the problem! 😂🤣😂🤣 Going commando! 😂🤣
My grandmother told a 16 year old me to stop gaining weight because I had camel toe
Whoa! My heart goes out to you,Christine. I can image how humiliated you must’ve felt. 😮
Humiliation. That’s the word. I’ve tried to think of different words that fit with her treatment of me and others. You nailed it Cherie. Humiliation was her to a T.
Now I can process this and release. 🥰
You’re most welcome, Christine! Just remember that you have value, you matter, and you are worthy of love and friendship. <3
I’m so happy we met. You inspire me. I’m going to record a podcast episode on Humiliation. You don’t hear that word often but so many people feel it and deal with is constantly.
Aww! Thank you so much, Christine! You don’t know how much this means! <3 Humiliation is the worst, I've been there more times than I care to count!
Going to scan through your other posts to see what other childhood wounds I can trigger on a Sat night. LOL! Take care
😂 Feel free to. You have a great night!
LOL🤣🤣 SUPER POST FRIEND😊
Thank you so much, Lokesh! 😀
It’s a pleasure.
good one,grandmothers are amazing aren’t they
Yes they are! I miss both my grandmothers.
