7 questions with Grandma Ursula

By Jackie Martin

Folks we are in for a treat! Hopewell Bay icon and famously elusive Grandma, Ursula, finally sat down with us for a lighting-round interview. Who is Grandma Ursula? What tickles her fancy? Why is she so very hard to reach? Buckle up – here we go:

Do you have any nicknames?

“Well dear, everyone calls me Grandma – aliases don’t count, do they?”

When is your birthday?

“Everyday in this town is a new start dearie. I haven’t aged a bit since I turned 21.”

What’s your favorite pie flavor?

“Certainly Hopeberry, when they are in season, with a nifty surprise in the middle.”

What do you do during your free time?

“Between whipping up pies, weed wrangling, plane flying, marksmanship practice, getting a lovely new tattoo and, of course, the motorcycle club – I’ve hardly had any time to spare.”

What’s your guilty pleasure?

“I do enjoy unwinding with a long and detailed True Crime podcast – but I sure don’t feel guilty about it.”

Who’s your ride-or-die?

“My dear granddaughter Maddie, of course! But with our talent medley for flying, driving and motorbiking – we’ll only be riding high.”

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to your younger self?

“It’s never too soon to find your inner Mystery Maven and give into it!”

This leaves us with a few more questions than answers but our time is up. Grandma Ursula had an appointment to run off to – something about pies or spies, it was hard to catch. See you next time with another Hopewell Bay VIP in the spotlight!
