My grandmother's tale

  1. Chinese proverb: Man is the head of the family, woman the neck that turns the head.

    Your grandmother might of thanked your dad because he was the head of the household and you know how traditional people can be.

    Which side the uncles and aunts were from weren't explicitly stated, so it got confusing at points.

    It was really interesting reading how you ended up in South America!

    So much reflection these days.

  3. Great comic Iris! So that's how your family ended up in Brazil! And yeah, I was also going to say that your grandmother looks like a snootier version of Snoopy.
