WATCH OUT MCDONALDS


Did you ever have an Auntie Mame? You know what I mean. The wild, madcap Aunt. The fun Aunt. 
I did. 
My darling Aunt Gertie. I hadn't seen her in many, many years but it seems like just last week she had me laughing my head off. 
She would make you put on wigs and act silly. She would drive like a maniac down the highway yelling at the top of her lungs "Watch out McDonalds" (taken from an old tv commercial) 
She would dress in the most....interesting ways and we always wondered what she would have on when she was coming over. 
Her sense of humour was quick and saucy. I can't even repeat here some of the stuff she said on here but I will tell those stories for years to come. 
So with a sad heart I say goodbye to my mother's sister more commonly known with love in our family as Dirty Gertie...rest in peace Widow Brown. 
Gertrude Champagne - March 24, 1928 to December 24, 2011

My condolences on the loss of your aunt - she sounds like just the kind of person I wish there were more of in this world.

Your Aunt sounds like a ton of fun. Even though she is now no longer in the world, she lives on. Please do include some fun, even wicked, stories of her goings-on. Happy New Year to my new friend in the North from lovely SF Bay Area, California.

So sorry to learn of your loss. I have never had a relative like this, but my goal is to be one.
