Granny Quote of the Day

Jed: [talking about the actor playing U.S. Grant] "He had a few sips from Granny's jug. Before it was over he apologized for Vicksburg, gave back Richmond, and promised to shoot Sherman for burning Atlanta."


Granny: "Don't go putting the blame on Uly!"

Colonel: "Uly?"

Jed: "ah General Grant"

Colonel: "you liked him?"

Granny: "For a 150 year old cigar smoking, whisky drinking, south scorching, carpet bagging, Yankee general, he ain't a bad sort."
