I’m very thankful for the years that I spent seeing my grandparents on a regular basis, and I don’t see them near enough anymore due to my time being occupied with school. I appreciate the lessons they have taught me that have helped shape me into the person I am today.
- Pappy and Dad can operate a tractor to stack apple bins faster and with more precision than I can stack a deck of cards, but Dad still says his grandfather was better than either of them.
- Leaves also work as toilet paper. Just, remember, no leaves of three…
- Four-wheel drive is a last resort. Pappy can get most things out of the snow or mud without it.
- Playing baseball with apples makes you very sticky and very happy.
- Growing up is not squirming when MawMaw wants to kiss you goodbye on the cheek, and not wiping it off until you’re out the front door.
- “If there’s time to lean, there’s time to clean.”
- Never pass an ice cream stand without trying the product. Ice cream without nuts is simply unacceptable to Pappy.
- Always lend a helping hand. If a friend or neighbor asks for help, Pappy’s only question is “what time do you want to start?”
- Skipping stones and catching minnows are skills everyone must learn. At the end of the day you have to put the minnows back. Pappy doesn’t agree that they would make great pets.
- Stop and smell the roses. Take time to enjoy the trees, woodland animals, babbling brooks, snow covered fields and sunsets.
