Many of you LOVE my grandfather so I thought I would share a little o’l story from earlier this week where he insisted I took his 400 year old extension cord and never returned it. Seriously gramp? My grandfather has had to work for everything his entire life and he grew up very poor. He is extremely protective over his “things” and doesn’t exactly share well. He is always trying to offer up all of his tools to me and he really does want to share BUT I think he has nightmares about them getting lost or broken! haha
He clearly didn’t play well in the sandbox as a child and he gets mad at me when I tell him he isn’t good at sharing. I know my family members who are reading this are giggling right now ;). If you follow us on instagram, many of you commented and giggled when I shared the day he flipped out because he couldn’t find his extension cord. He told me a 30 minute long story about how that extension cord has been with him since he was basically born. He makes me laugh that’s for sure!
This is the picture I took of him 10 minutes after he was mad at me. haha. I told him smile, this is a blog moment for sure! He said, “don’t you dare!” Sorry gramps. He was even more mad when I took him to his workshop and told him it was right in front of him and he just didn’t see it. You know what his response was, “well you must have just put it back while I wasn’t looking.” I busted out laughing at him and told him “it’s a good thing I love you gramps!”
