My dear skinny little Grandma looked me squarely in the bottom of the shirt pocket.

I could span my Mama's waist by touching my thumb-tips and the tips of my middle fingers ... and Grandma was skinnier than Mama.
During the Second Disagreement, Grandma riveted fuel tanks for various bombers.

Her foreman was a big Irishman and he ordered her to rivet them from the INSIDE.

She bristled up like a Banty hen and shoved her belly into his front and drove her finger repeatedly into his gut and told him exactly what she though of him and his ancestors clear back to Atilla the Hun or Adam, whichever came first ... and he never, ever told her to climb inside a fuel tank again!
