My Review Of The Granny Awards, 2015

What a night, live from the audience at the Stippled Centre! Seniors from all around the country were gathered, and I was in the audience for all of the spectacular performances.

Sponsors like Dentu-Creme stuck with their commitment to keep the teeth in for the best performances of the year, once again. Jaws will be wagging this morning!

It was the collaborations that everyone will be talking about at the water cooler this morning, or in the lineup at the bed pan refinishing shop back in the local senior's centres.

How about Doris McCulsky, who accompanied Albert Spiner on piano for a rousing chorus of "You Are My Sunshine"?? So many moments they were almost on key...

Then the reunion of Jean Simmins and Paul Stan Lee brought the audience to their walkers with their rousing rendition of "My Joints Rock & Roll All Night".

Special presenter Biddy White had the crowd roaring when she announced that the kitchen was out of  strained beets, but the replacement of stewed prunes took some of the edge off of the surly crowd for awhile.

It was the long shots coming through for awards that had tongues clucking, or maybe that was just the sound of the chickens in the kitchen before they were served a-la-King. Everyone attendance thought for sure Bee "Honey" Onsay would pick up a trophy or two, but her arthritis forced her granddaughter to do that for her.

I couldn't make out what the Hearing Aid Clinic was trying to say, but I understand it had something to do with longer-lasting batteries. Auntie Lennocks raised a few eyebrows with her appearance alongside a far younger ukulele player, but I thought it went well for them.

I hope to return next year, as these Granny Awards are always such a great time. And, I really love the tapioca pudding treats...

I, being the much younger member of this family, enjoyed the Grammy Awards myself. Fantastic and the collaborations far outdid the Granny ones.
