He wasn’t really a crook.
He wasn’t crooked in the sense of being a regular lawbreaker.
BUT—his dear old Nanna loved him so much. She would do anything for him.

“Tomato plants are like that, you know, Nan.”
And she nodded. And nurtured. And wondered, but only questioned once why no little green fruit appeared.
“Tiny cocktail tomatoes, Nan,” he said, hugging her.
NOT marijuana plants. NO!
