Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I came across this 1986 newspaper clipping the other day:

This is an example of how Grandpa Bob worked with his grandchildren. He did practical projects with them to improve our property, and in cases like this, our community. If something was broken, they fixed it. If a sign was needed, they made one. In this instance, the dirt roads in our neighborhood had unreadable street signs (and often NONE), so people could easily get lost trying to find an address. Grandpa Bob, Damian, and Gabe went all around the neighborhood looking for signs that needed to be replaced, then started mass producing sign posts. They didn't stop until Grandpa Bob was satisfied that they had done enough. This was my dad's contribution to our kids' homeschooling. When he was around, there was always some project going on that often involved the boys. In my experience, having grandparents around to add their "two cents" to the family is worth a million bucks!

What a good man your dad is!
I'm surprised though that your city would allow them to make street signs. Ours sure wouldn't.

I'm impressed with that Eric Neil guy. He always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to get good shots of the Lester family for the newspaper!

We are rural here. Most street signs on dirt roads are homemade.
