Grannies on wheels are dangerous things
Margery & Mary
When my grandma was alive, so used to have a scooter, which she used to get around in. She was lethal with the scooter, let me tell you. I think my grandpa still has bruises on his toes from all the times she ran over his feet when going in reverse.
Yes, give a granny a motor, and you don't know what you're letting yourself in for. While I was at Kingston's May Merrie, I was walking through the town square when I had an unlikely encounter with a pair of grannies on motorised shopping trollies. 'Mary' and 'Margery' are members of Granny Turismo, a five man - sorry, woman - team of motor enthusiasts with OAP passes and some rhythmic moves.
Granny Turismo are currently performing around the country on a Bad Nanas Tour, and are absolutely ace entertainment. After a word from their sponsors, Mary & Margery dance & drove around the square, revving their motors at middle aged men, and insulting face painted kids. If you want to see them for yourself, check out their tour dates to find out where they are heading next.
