Very Special Family Easter Quiz

Gather round the fire, get the kids settled in and pull up the old armchair for gramps. This is the first time that my Mom has sent me material (in the form of a hand-written 5 page letter, because Sheena's Mom doesn't do the innerdnets).

After spending a week babysitting HER mom (Sheena's Baba), she wrote "You and your sister inspired me and when I was in Winnipeg I made a list of the things I lned from my mother this week, so I'm enclosing a copy for you. Enjoy!! I don't have a copyright on it, so you're free to use any parts of it as you see fit" Her piece is titled "List of Things I Learned From My Mother This Week - AKA Lies My Mother Told me As Her Dementia Slowly Sets In..."

So Sheena has decided to mix this up a little bit and give her readers a challenge. Sharpen up your pencils!

Easy?! I think Sheena should post the correct answers before I lose my mind trying to guess the right ones!

The last one is Raymi's Mom, though. That one was easy.

Hmmmmmmmmmm - sounds like someone I live with! Hope it ain't catchy! but I guess that's why I don't shop at Value Village.

Interesting. Does your Baba have any investing tips?

Buy blow, sell when you're high.

I read your post and there was considerable discussion at the pumpernickle Ukrainian Easter table about whether or not the T-Shirt under the bra would work. Baba thought that Sheena's Baba might be on to something.

I don't know what you're talking about, Sheena - those all sound like valuable pieces of advice to me!
