Of all the characters to come to the boot sale over the years, none was more eccentric than Grandma Rose. She didn’t give a fig for how she dressed, behaved or looked. This is for her, wherever she may be…
An old grandma, her name was Rose,
Came to the boot sale to buy her clothes,
She wore orange, red and green,
The weirdest outfits ever seen!
She drove about in her old Morris Minor,
“Wonderful car there’s none finer!”
In town she parked where she wanted to stop,
Right outside her chosen shop!
Her kids were worried to despair,
She’d even taken to purple hair,
Where was her money? She’s never said,
I bet it was in fifties under the bed!
