Crabby Granny

Posted on September 7, 2016

Crabby Granny is a witch of old. She has a belt made of jute to hang just about anything she finds while she's scouring the woods! It helps keep her hands free when she's out collecting. One of her staples is a small jar filled with dried herbs. It's her magic potion, a cure-all she's never without. And by golly, it does cure all!

Her shoes are really old and worn out by now. It can get caked with mud specially when she goes out during a terrifying storm. She says there are special mushrooms that grow only during lightning flashes and pounds of thunder, and melt with the first ray of the sun. So she has no choice but  to collect them while the storm is raging. It's a potent ingredient she swears by.

Like the name she is known for, she is crabby and will look and sound like she wants to bite your head off, but don't worry, it's all bark. She is good and kind and will heal any ailments. She records all of her cures in her book of herbs.

Here she is trying to remember the proportions of that healing tonic.
I think she's about to get up...

A few days ago, after sitting down and writing in her book (I talked about Crabby Granny's book here), Crabby Granny decided to go to Puyallup and hang out at the WA State Fair. She took her rocking chair and cane with her so she was serious about staying there for a while. Must be the flora...

Crabby Granny's cane is made of dark wood. She sculpted a bird's head at the top.
She also made this rocking chair from the branches of a 100-year old tree.
The picked up the felled branches after a big storm.

This morning, she sent me this picture. Seems, she's accomplished more than collecting herbs over there at the WA State Fair.

(Betty M, the NWPCG president who sent me the sms photo about Crabby Granny's ribbons at the WA State Fair - much thanks Betty!)

In my previous job as a magazine writer, I often needed to source free stock images and sxc was a great destination. Through the years, the site was converted to Free Images. As a way of giving back and thanking the generosity of photographers worldwide, I started contributing photos too (I have more photo contributions but for some reason they are not appearing under my profile).
