Immy: When I asked her what she and Grammy did, she said, "We went to a meeting." She told me that they saw my Mom's friend Sue there and she had a bandage on her finger, but that Sue is fine. Immy also told me that she is growing yellow apples at Grammy's house.
My Mom/Grammy (currently pronounced Gammy): "All of that is true but the apples are green tomatoes. She was absolutely perfect at a very important meeting. I told her ahead of time about having to be very quiet and she told me to tell her exactly when she had to be very quiet."
