Is or was kick ass?

My grandmother was. She was bad ass! Married 6 times. Worked so many strange jobs, even drove a dump truck. Sewed clothes that were amazing. Made gorgeous quilts by hand. Took in every stray person, especially children that needed a home. Made meals to die for. Dressed like a teenager, ironed her sheets, and drank like a sailor.

Give you the shirt off her back, screw her over, she would beat you with her hammer!

I always wanted to be like her. I am on marriage 4, I think I will stop here. Lol

my great grandmother born during rthe great depression-married twice-had 6 kids both husbands died young-single mom-raised her kids with an iron first-she worked as a nurse in a mental institution.....also was involved in politics-was the first woman in her town to do so-won many awards and did a lot of good for her town


there are so many awesome stories I could share-but I'd just start crying because you had to be there to know her and love her....she was  one hell of a woman.

My dad's mom was kick ass. My uncle was married toa crazy woman a long time ago and she beat him with a baseball bat and sent him to the hospital. My tiny 85lb grandma , in turn, beat her with a telephone reciever. I know this doesn't scream stability, but it's my uncle's favorite story.

My aunt.  She has never been married and never had any kids but is always with a guy - usually much younger.  She spent most of her adult life teaching skiing during the winter and surfing during the summer.  She retired from both those gigs at 60 and has been just racing sled dogs for the past 10 years.  She also has an amazing "bucket list" and is sure to check items off every year.  Last month she went bungee jumping at Victoria Falls.  Yeah, she is kick ass!
