Gangsta Granny

Concerned followers have been asking where’s Nugget?

He has been keeping out of the rain, but during the fine early morning today he emerged as Jackie filled his food tray.

Here is her picture of “Where’s Nugget?” (68)

Louisa, Errol, Jessica, and Imogen, staying for the weekend, arrived in time for lunch. This afternoon Danni, Andy, Ella, Elizabeth, and Jacqueline joined us and organised chaos ensued.

Imogen had a school project to undertake. This involved creating a potato dressed as a favourite book character. General debate arrived at Gangsta Granny. A number of those present contributed suggestions and Jackie provided pieces of jewellery to be dripping out of the swag bag. Jessica, incidentally informed me that swag now means cool.

Here is Granny in her various stages of development,

Finally Imogen added a bejewelled handbag, a black skirt, and a handwritten label.

Jessica meanwhile worked on a poster about World War Two.

Somehow I seem to have posted this prematurely. We are about to dine on Jackie’s piquant cauliflower cheese; smoked haddock, fishcakes, mashed potato, carrots and runner beans. I expect there will be some imbibing.


  1. Adorable project. Imogen’s teacher has imagination making that an assignment! And she was lucky to have such impressive assistants to create Gangsta Granny!

    I wasn’t worried about Nugget. Birds have to most uncanny ways of becoming invisible during the rain. (Except our rain-loving Ibis who take advantage of insects and worms emerging out of the lawns during our showers.)

  2. Love the Gangsta Granny. Very creative indeed. I’m sure that Imogen’s teacher will love it. πŸ™‚ So happy to see Nugget again. He sure knows which side his bread is buttered. D

  3. It’s good to see Nugget. I don’t know the character, but well done with the potato project! My daughter does similar projects with her students. I think they do it with a pumpkin around Halloween.

    1. Thanks very much, Merril. I didn’t know the Granny either. Children are great educators of the aged πŸ™‚ Lady Nugget and Ron or Ronette also in evidence today.

  4. So pleased to see Nugget emerging from his hideout!
    What a fabulous family day and I loved the joint school project, we’ll done everyone ?

  5. HA! I love Gangsta Granny! She is an apeeling gal! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ How wonderful that everyone helped her get outfitted! πŸ˜› And what a great school assignment! πŸ™‚
    So good to see Nugget! πŸ™‚
    It might be a good thing that the imbibing occurred AFTER Granny got gansta’d! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›
    HUGS!!! πŸ˜€

  6. When I was a kid (early 1950s) there was a game called Mr. Potato Head. I remember plastic noses, eyebrows, and such that could be used to create potato characters. This is more creative, but the game’s the same, even without the same name! Good to see Nugget, too. I was sure he was fine, but it’s nice to have an appearance.

  7. I don’t know who Gangsta Granny is but the character created by Imogen is adorable.
    Mr Nugget is flashing his bright orange vest just a bit to the left and south of center.
