Grandad loved it when his grandson came over. He was smart, good-looking and could swing the sledgehammer. Breezing through the back door, he always brought a breath of fresh air to the old man’s soul. Today his mother sent him with fresh scones, and grandad loved a pumpkin scone.
Grandad wanted the old brick wall demolished and was glad his grandson could knock it down in no time. With the wall gone, he could get in a truck to pull down the old laundry. Grandad loved renovating, and a youthful offsider was all he needed as he had plans.
The grandson swung the big hammer and soon the fence was a pile of rubble. Grandad stood back grinning widely admiring his grandson’s strength and agility. Into an old wheelbarrow, they loaded the bricks grandad saying he’d recycle them on another job building a garden border in the front yard.
The two men sat in the kitchen enjoying the pumpkin scones and discussing grandad’s plans. Grandad always made a great cup of tea. The grandson told his grandad about his plan to go on an overseas holiday. Grandad then told his grandson to do it while he was still young.
