Granny's Oatmeal Cookies

My Granny always had a stash of cookies!
She had several kinds to choose from
at any given time!
She stored them in various
containers of all kinds.
Some fancy some not so fancy.
She kept them on a yellow cart
in her kitchen.
The cookie cart!
It was in a perfect location!
It was strategically
near the back door and close to a
nearby hallway!
Perfect for grabbing and running,
a necessity to not being caught!
As the weekend came to an end the level
in the jars would drop significantly!
Granny did not mind!
She would happily fill them
up to the top again!
Ready and waiting
for our return!
