Family Myths and Legends



Grandpa always had the best tall tales about his youth.  With his perfect sense of timing they were knee-slapping, side-splitting hilarious in a way that most professional comedians would envy.  That one about how he got his limp, man, the joy ride from Hell!  His eyes always lit up on that one.

After the funeral I took a hike in those woods that featured in so many of his stories.  I could imagine them as if I was there.

And then I saw it.

The Car.

Right where he said it would be.

I laughed so hard the tears flowed.

      I always wanted to see that movie, but I missed it first run and never made it back. One of my nieces still has that at the top of her list of all time favorite movies. But, yeah, Grandpa in this tale is like that.
