Grandpa, tell me a story. Never entered my mind that I would hear that until it actually happened. My grandson Jake who is already 5 years old asked me that a few years back. And I had to come up with something really quick. SO I told him the Time Woody story, about my older brother,my dog Woody. Well, he wanted to know everything about him.
And the story telling has continued. Lately he wants stories about court and jail. And he knows I’m a lawyer and that I’ve been to court and I’ve visited clients in jail. And he wants to know all about it.
It’s a way to bond from generation to generation. I have always said , tell stories, pass the oral history down. So I am truly blessed,when my grandson says to:me, Grandpa, tell me a story.
