I opened it with out looking. There was a teenage boy with a tiny pistol. He took all the money I had except for one dime. My grandmother was mother of three, and grandmother of 12, all born within 12 years. My grandfather was a shift worker at an aluminum plant. They had a tiny modest house and a shack by the nearby lake. They barely were over the poverty line that they had a comfortable life as all down to her extreme frugality. She could squeeze a nickel further than anyone I ever knew. She was very practical and pragmatic. She made it very clear she was not babysitting other than as a very special favour in an emergency.

We did crafts on her kitchen table, took her pots and spoons into the sandbox and ran in and out with dirty feet and wet bathing suits. However, she was not in charge of us. Oh, and if your family came over, bring snacks and food, lol. We were over at her place all the time. She was nice about it, but firm. Her attitude was you had the kids, you look after them. I’ve told the story before, but in the early years of my parent’s marriage, there was some turbulence.
