Whoa, interesting story. I don't think no one will mess with her again.

Grammer, who has 10 children, 32 grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren, said she worried she had killed the man. "All I could think about was his poor parents," Grammer said.
Ok so this person is 64 years old, correct? And she has 10 children, 32 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren....?

Wow.


BTW: I just did a preview of my post and just saw Blue Velvet's post.

They could certainly do a great story on her remarkable genealogy. Finding out all of their ages would be of great interest. She feared for her life and took action. Quite a remarkable women. One of those stories that leave out some real interesting aspects to "the rest of the story."

Okay, Great-great-grandmother at 64 . . . so that makes the average age split between generations 16 years . . . :eek:

And my great-grandmother didn't earn her second 'great' until she was 92 years old . . .

And you gotta figure they couldn't all be exactly 16 years apart, so someone had to have had a kid at like 13 or 14.

My Grandparents are both 94, almost 95. I can't even imagine this family... Not that there's anything wrong with that...

well due to the sheer volume of people in her family, there are bound to be some big contributors. Law of averages man!

When my Great Grandmother passed away in this past winter, she proudly claimed 113 descendants (including those who married into the family) My wife was number 107 (I think) when we got married just over three years ago. Family reunions were HUGE. (and I hardly knew half the people there).

Note to self: Next time, wait until there is a great-great-great-grandmother behind the counter before robbing the next store.

It's pretty impressive when anyone stands up in a situation like that and takes control, much less a senior citizen. Way to go!

Hmmm...my mom is 84. Here first child was born when she was 24. Her first grandchild was born when she was 55, and her first great-grandchild arrived when she was 79. If she makes it, she'll probably be about 105 or so when she becomes a Great-great-grandmother.
I can't imagine shaving 41 years out of that timeline to make her a g-g-gm at 64 :eek:

Grammer's a vindictive old lady.

Vindictive? No, she's just a bad shot. One shot one kill. No need to waste perfectly good ammo like that. :D

Impressive lady, but it's still a bit of a worry that she was allowed a gun at all. If someone gave my great great grandmother a gun I'd be worried - she's very racist. :(

Grammer said she never had to shoot anyone during her 10 years of working as a security guard.
How many of your grammas worked as security guards?

This sounds like one tough cookie. You generally have to watch out, legally speaking, when you shoot someone in the back though. It's rarely considered self-defense at that point.

A few years back there was a guy who had his store robbed multiple times, so he decided to lay in wait for the crooks. Apparently he surprised the guy, unloaded a full clip at him, then re-loaded and fired some more while the guy lay there bleeding on the floor, which was not exactly well-received by the police or the DA. I don't remember the details, just this quote: "Hell, if I'd had a hand grenade I'd have thrown at him that, too."

Beautiful.

Ha ha haaa!
At that rate, she could be a great-great-great-great-grandmother by the time she's 96. :eek: Has that ever been done before?!
