    Rational or irrational act? You be the judge

    Feelings run very deep about our sewing machines. Granny may have over-reacted just a tad, though, lol.

      Oh dear!! At least she didn't kill her.

            Oh my goodness. I wonder what kind of sewing machine it was. Mama always put the fear of God in me about sneaking and using her sewing scissors . I have those scissors now and still won't touch them.

              There have been times when I could have used a gun - when someone who shall remain nameless used my fabric sissors to cut heaven knows what, when my seam ripper dissappeared (can't even imagine what he used that for), and if I have to buy one more pair of tweezers I really am gonna shoot that guy - LOL

                  Just an observation about headlines: In this case it was appropriate, since the article was about a confrontation between grandmother and grand daughter. But I have noticed when a woman does something amazing, or gets assaulted, and it makes the news, it's always "70 year old Grandma defends her home" or "Two thugs attack Grandma of 7"
                  Does being a grandmother have a bearing on the story?
                  Do they ever say "70 year old woman with no children or grand children runs Marathon"? ""80 year old woman who chose to remain celibate gets mugged"?
                  Don't get me wrong, I love my grand children to pieces, but I am not defined by them, or by my children.

                  Ok, rant is over.........

                    Oh No. Even older people reaching for guns to settle an argument. This is such a sad state of affairs. It has it's comic side I know, but still it is disheartening.

                        Pretty strange! I tried looking this up to see what the argument was actually about but couldn't find any details except this happened in 2015. So I am not sure what caused it to resurface a year later.

                            It reminds me of the stories you see around Thanksgiving "son stabs father over drumstick".
