Grandmother is this week's word at Every Inchie Monday. I think I deserve a prize for finding this one in The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Assuming we are still near the beginning of the book, the reference I found is in chapter 5 in the Book's description of the Vogon Constructor Fleets. To describe how nasty these creatures are the book warns: "They wouldn't even lift a finger to save their own grandmothers from the Ravenous Bugblaster Beast of Traal without orders signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters." Now that's obscure, but I'm really quite enjoying trying to find the words.
I usually like to vary the idea for each inchie but this time,, I couldn't think of two things. I wanted to find a photograph of my grandmother, but my family photos are upstairs on a high up shelf (in a spot quite like where they post road planning information in HHGG) and it seemed to painful an endeavour to undertake, so here is a drawing of a generic grandmother:
And a quilled grandmother:
Have a good week everyone and be kind to your elderly relatives (unfortunately that's me in my family!) I'm not a grandmother but I am a Great Aunt.
