Granny Morkie is one of the nomes introduced in Truckers. She is one of the Outside nomes who bring the Thing to the Store. Just like Torrit she is very old (almost ten, which is very old for a nome). Granny Morkie's main contribution is to complain how much better it was in the old times. Actually, she does it so well and so often that it could be called a hobby of hers. Interestingly enough, whenever things are really bad, she tries to cheer people up with stories of how much worse it was in the old days. Nevertheless, she is very optimistic and nothing can bring her down. In her opinion everything will work out in the end.
