she kind has that "Phyllis Diller" crazy look locked up!

Goin' to "church" eh? That's whut all the burglars claim ...

If I had a dime for every time I had to run an errand on my way to church...

Ma Barker is looking a little rough.

quite the granny...

she could win a george clooney lookalike contest

Nice to see retirees staying active.

Yup ... she's prolly only doin' this sorta thing becuz her SSA check doesn't cover her expenses ...

The failure was in the execution not the idea. The problem is she tried to drive like a high speed getaway driver. Who would look for robbers trying to escape the scene in a Buick Medicare Wagon with the turn signal on, traveling 10 MPG under the speed limit? If she had stuck to being a camouflage getaway driver, when she went down the dead-end road she could have done the traditional 57-point Y turn and the cop probably would have stopped traffic for her.

"... owned by a little old lady who only drove it in burglaries on Sunday ... "

Show me the CarFax.

Amazing - I thought sure the prove-you're-not-a-bot image would pop up on that last post.
