Inheritance


My Grandma and Grandpa (Dad's side) have passed on... They provided the most excellent childhood memories!. They had a small house in quaint St. Charles Idaho... It is the most beautiful place on earth . My parents now own their little home and it makes a fantastic escape.

One of my favorite memories of staying with my grandparents are the "chopper hoppers".

They are in fact the only inheritance I received.

What is a chopper hopper you ask???...

Its where old people store and soak their dentures while their fast asleep...and whilst my grandparents were fast asleep a certain 4 year old would ALWAYS sneak a peek. Back then dentures were fascinating...

come to think of it they still are.

I have made a special place in my bathroom for the chopper hoppers.

Rest in peace grams and gramps love you.

That's where those things went! Sweet! I'm glad they haven't been relegated to some dusty box in a basement. Although they never held as much fascination for me as they did for you ;), they were quite a hallmark of the Grandparents.
