This week marks the 7th anniversary of GreatNan’s death. The exact date is not known because it occurred whilst she was out walking near her home in the French Alps. She was missing for 8 days, probably as a result of a fall, although I haven’t found any information in that regard, but there are over 400 messages at that time showing how well regarded she had been.
GreatNan enjoyed walking alone in remote mountain passes to enjoy the scenery, but knew the risks, having previously had a nasty fall.
I’ve enjoyed her legacy of jokes left with Gransnet, many of which she freely admitted to plagiarising from the’Net, but other ‘Netters also contributed. some of whom are still with us.
GreatNan appears to have been a remarkable woman and I would have loved to “meet” her, not only for her jokes but also other products of her lively mind.
Anyway, by way of thanks on this anniversary I propose to reproduce a joke-a-day during this week; some that I particularly enjoyed!
