What is something your grandmother always has on hand?

My mom’s mom always has Neosporin ointment and my dad’s mom always had grease in one form or another. That woman cooked everything in fat.

Good grandma story…sorry to derail a bit. My maternal grandma married my grandfather because they hit it off and had the same birthday…What she didn’t tell him was she was 10 years older! They were both great people but grandma was so cool…she read tea leaves in cups and did it professionally when she needed money…she read people really well.

White or wheat flour.

My maternal grandmother always had her hands up to her elbows in flour of some kind or another. And she usually sifted it. Making lots of pie crust, and different kinds of cakes, cookies and breads… Her baking was matched only by her cooking, gardening, canning and housekeeping. She was a female Jack of all trades. My grandpa really was a Jack of all trades.

Cigarettes, she was too addicted, was a smoker for almost 70 years. She had like 1000 cigarettes in her room.

We didnt let her smoke in our house so she smoked in the bathroom, garage, her room, etc She was living with us and we hate smoking as it smells bad. It was a nightmare, I was always angry at her as I used to sleep in her room when I was a kid and I would suffocate when she smoked at night when I was sleeping with the door and windows closed as its too cold outside like -30 to -40C.

She died at around 80y.o. from kidney failure probably from smoking. She told me that she started smoking when she was 10 y.o.

Just about every Arab I knew in college smoked. I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing. The people I hung out with were Saudis so I don’t know if it’s a Saudi thing. Like iced tea is a cultural thing in the southern USA.

Yeah. Idk. Probably just those people liked to smoke and it had nothing to do with the culture.
