An 80 year old woman used her husband’s sword to fight off two teenaged attackers, reports the BBC. Wow, that’s a spunky octagenarian. I like her quote in the article:
“They were big men and I am not big at all.
“I was trying to keep them away from a chair in the far corner of the room – behind the cushion was my bag, cheque book and all my money,” she said.
“I pointed the sword at the stomach of one them and shouted ‘Get out, get out’.
” I have still got my sword and I am ready to use it if anyone else should have a go.”
