Another Peeperism


Grandmother Peeper says, 
"If'n ya eat too close ta the rind, 
you'll be a-catchin' a chill." 


Peeper is a most popular player in the historical romance Goodbye Lie series, set in the late 1800s on Amelia Island, Florida. She does not like being called Grandmother.  It's not that she is vain about her age.  No, it's that she doesn't want folks to think she's infirm and offer their assistance at her every movement. 

Just because her feet are swole up like fat little bald men, as she will tell you, she declines most help, being the proudly independent person she is.
