Granddaughter at the Boot Sale!


BuvvvIf anyone had suggested in 1992 that I’d still be running a car boot sale twenty-one years later, I’d have suggested they sought medical advice! Had they said that I’d be seen carrying a granddaughter around, I would have suggested they were delusional and needed stronger tablets! However that’s exactly what has happened…

I took Granddaughter to the Boot Sale,
She gurgled quite a lot,
Some of the sellers were gob-smacked,
Thought I’d lost the plot!
She said “Buvvv” to everyone,
Hid her modesty behind large shades,
Only bought one thing, a picture,
Alligators in the Everglades!
She turned down a burger,
No sweets did she pick!
And kept my guilty secret,
Breakfast in French stick!
