Just had to share this story...my 83 year old mother (who family calls Toots) claims she's 5 feet tall. Truth be told, I don't think she was ever that tall.
She's the kind of woman kids love...they stand back to back with her and then you hear them squeal, "I'm taller than you!".
Every year, I think she loses another inch of height. She claims, that at 63, I'm just getting taller (I'm 5'1").
To be honest, I am not at all sure that she's legal to ride in a car without a booster seat. If you ever see a Honda without a driver tooting down the road, it's probably Mom.
In a family of practical jokers, short people are easy victims, just put things high, out of reach.
A few years ago, Tony sent me this:
I think I'll just print it and post it on her fridge!
Love ya Mom!
