Sentimental Sundays - Our Sign
My f-i-l was know as Grumpy to all his grandchildren, my hubby is known as Grumpy to his as well. Many years ago my f-i-l bought a sign at a garage sale that he proudly hung by his front door. Even after he died my m-i-l left it there. When she moved into the nursing home it disappeared and thought it was gone. So imagine my surprise when it was among the thing she had kept and it was given to us.
Unfortunately I am not prepared to hang it by the front door, they lived in the country and there it was safe, we live in the city and I am not so sure that someone would not help themselves to the sign if they liked it.
I am hoping to get my hubby to put it up in our backyard as it will be safer there. It is a strange little heirloom, but it reminds my so much of my f-i-l's wit, and when I read it I can't help but remember his sparkling blue eyes surrounded by laugh lines. Miss you Eddie.
