Pat Shingleton: "The Roller..."
Our Mom, Grandma Shirley, will be 93 this week. She resides in the house where she was born that rests on an acre of land in Ellwood City, PA. We pool our resources to assist her in daily care, house cleaning and property management. Most lawns in that section of the country encounter damage from the winter weather and hers was further damaged due to access to her back door. She recently commented, "Patrick, there's lots of 'ruts' in the yard but we can get out the 'roller' to mend those." Imagine a 3-foot-long cement pipe, 2 feet in diameter. Stick a pipe in it, fill it with concrete, attach a metal brace, 2-by-4 and a handle. This was and is our "roller," constructed in the 1920s. That roller still works and has caused numerous hernias.
