This week’s challenge…’Heritage’ takes me back to going to my grandma’s house just about every Sunday where there was always lots of good food and fun.
One thing I remember was my grandpa sitting on his big rocking chair in the basement holding court with my dad and my uncles each nursing a bottle of beer and discussing world issues…lol. Being around five or six at the time, I didn’t participate much in those talks but there was this bottle opener nailed to the wall and a square box under it to catch the bottle caps.
Me and my two cousins used to grab the beer caps out of this box and use a hand operated stone grinder on my grandpa’s workbench to shine the caps. I have no idea why or what we did with them but it seemed to be fun at the time.
So years after my grandparents passed away, I was helping my aunt get the house ready for sale and there it was…
Now it’s nailed to my basement wall and every time I walk by, it puts a smile on my face remembering those Sundays as a kid growing up.
