My Grandma is Cooler than Yours.
(video below article)
Sure you may have an awesome grandma and sure I may be a little biased, but let me tell you about my grandma and you will see why I tell people, “My Grandma is cooler than yours.” At 80 years young Mildred Spencer is in a league of her own. Besides making the world’s best pancakes, crocheting sweaters, and making quilts like other grandmas, she is a NRA certified shooting instructor, one heck of a crack shot, and she can go out into the woods and fill her own freezer. Bet your grandma can’t do that.
During the 2015 Ohio deer season, she harvested 2 deer, one with a crossbow and the other with a shotgun. Not only did she make the kill shots; she completed the work by field dressing them herself. For most this would be enough to declare to the world that “I have the coolest grandma!” but what I am most proud of is what she does outside of the woods.
My grandma’s passion is introducing kids to shooting sports. Safety and responsible gun ownership make up the foundation of her instruction, and only after that foundation is laid does start shooting. She teaches rifle, pistol, shotgun, muzzle loading, and archery. She has classes year round always taking the time to mentor the kids and instilling in them a love and respect for shooting and the outdoors. That is why my grandma is cooler than yours.
Me along with her other grandchildren are so blessed to be able to hunt with our grandma. In the mornings she cooks us pancakes and in the afternoon we drag out her deer. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
