Pat Shingleton: Gramps is Tired
Monday's column described Jack Steckman's gravesite business and Christmas evergreen wreaths placed on graves. Jack saved left-over branches for our Mom. Gramp's would retrieve the branches by using a cradle box attached to a sled as this assignment also got Kevin and me out of her hair. A short trip to Steckman's lasted two hours because Gramp's would chat with every neighbor along the route. At Steckman's the branches were layered into the sled-cradle. When the loading was complete, Gramp's would continue "jawing," parking the sled under a snow-laden pine, next to Jack's driveway. Kevin crawled on-top of the branches whereby an "un-loading" took place. I shook the pine branch, dumping 15 pounds on him. Gramps was tired on the trip home.
