The family wheeled Grandma out on the lawn, in her wheelchair, where the activities
for her 100th birthday were taking place, Grandma couldn't speak very well, but she
would write notes when she needed to communicate. After a short time out on the
lawn, grandma started leaning off to the right, so some family members grabbed her,
straightened her up, and stuffed pillows on her right side. A short time later, she
started leaning off to her left, so again the family grabbed her and stuffed pillows
on her left side. Soon she started leaning forward, so the family members again
grabbed her, and then tied a pillowcase around her waist to hold her up.
A nephew who arrived late came up to Grandma and said....Hi, Grandma, you're
looking good! How are they treating you ?. Grandma took out her little notepad
and slowly wrote a note to the nephew....."B*****ds won't let me fart".

An old lady in front of me in church some years ago always used to slowly fall to the left. I had to literally lean forward from my pew and hold her up for the last 5 minutes of the sermon.

I just thought she wanted to lie down. The wind moves in a mysterious way :-S
