A Long Way from Chicago


Grandma Dowdel

  • Is fiercely independent and a hard worker.
  • Makes her grandchildren do chores
  • Through her actions not outright affection, but she lets them know she loves them.
  • Is not above blackmail to get what she wants or to have justice served.
  • "The Mouse in the Milk - 1930." The Cowgill boys are tormenting the town by blowing up Grandma's mailbox or Effie Wilcox's privy.
