I had a Grandfather that was just the most greater than life character.
He made such an impression on myself and others that as a person in his mid 50’s, I still guess of him in addition to his stories.
He’s been gone well over 30 years in addition to yet I still miss him. Thankfully, our dad made a video tape or multiple when our gramps was honestly going on about his exploits. Gramps didn’t suppose it at the time which makes it all the better. One of those tales was about how all of us are all so soft with our Heating plus A/C cooling in the summer. And this from a person who would crank his control unit down to 68 degrees even when it was a hundred outside. But, having grown up in addition to lived without modern Heating plus A/C much of his life, I guess he was just getting even. I’ve talked to our dad many times about those pre-Heating plus A/C mornings. My dad is in his 77’s now however can sort of remember the first time they had a central air system in the house. He would talk about going to see his Grandfatherrents in addition to dealing with the heat. Like me, these were people who grew up in addition to lived in a region where the summer time temps hover around triple digits with similar humidity levels. Dad remembers his gramps thought it was too extravagant just to have an evaporative cooler. That’s just silly to me. I can’t even fathom living through one of our summers without the Heating plus A/C cooling all of us get from the heat pump. Every one of us all get a bit put out while I was in the peak heating minutes because all of us let the house heat up in order to save on Heating plus A/C. I can’t imagine the moaning in addition to complaining if all of us only had a swamp cooler.
