The Problem

    looked and sounded like this

    Shotgun Cheathams coffin and the gauze above it
    started swinging.
  • Pg/27-28/One more was when Grandma blew up The
    Cowgill Brothers with a cherry bomb

    Grandma Dowdel every year during their summer
    vacation. They live in the big city of Chicago,
    while Grandma lives in a small Illinois town. The
    story is told by Joe as an adult as he reminisces
    about those summer trips. Grandma's life makes
    for fun adventures.

Grandma
  • Grandma breaks the law and tells "whoppers," or
    lies, sometimes big ones. Most of the time she
    does these things in the service of others,
    though once in a while, she does it for her own
    amusement.
