I remember my grandfather’s old friends, old “John.” My grandmother was so angry! “John” was a beautiful old Norwegian man. Nevertheless, grandma was angry. I don’t know why—never knew why. I have a picture of him in my collection. Grandpa and John posed near grandpa’s boat. I think John figured into the house fire that my grandparents had. I didn’t know why. Only that the house fire involved the upper floors where my uncle Bud had a bedroom. Possibly a closet. I wish I had known more about my uncle. Was there much my grandparents could have told me?
