Ben Franklin & a Piece of Pie

Contributor: kevsha Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

When I was 11 years old, my Dad and sister Jody, and I, went on a two-week summer road trip to the Eastern United States (from Monticello, Utah) with my Grandpa Ned (paternal Grandfather). It was a wonderful adventure -- just the four of us. We visited many large cities (i.e. Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Washington D.D.) as well as a number of Church History sights (i.e. Nauvoo, Carthage Jail, Kirtland, Palmyra, and the Sacred Grove) along the way. My Dad got us all "sippers" (32 ounce plastic containers with a straw attached) and would let us fill it up with soda whenever we would stop at a convenient store. Jody and I sat in the back seat of Grandma and Grandpa Jensen's Chevrolet Celebrity car. We had a cooler in our trunk and would keep it stocked with lunch meats, etc. for lunch. Jody and I would sometimes tussle (for fun) in the back seat. I would charge over to her side after yelling "Ready Men!" as if I was summoning my soldiers to charge, upon which she would reply, "Ready Women!" before charging my army over to her side. That made me laugh pretty hard and we would laugh and laugh as we clashed our "armies" over and over again. Grandpa was retired and fairly old (73) when we joined us on this trip. As such, he lacked the energy to join us for dinner after checking into the motel; he preferred to just bed down and watch t.v. As such, Jody and Dad and I would usually go to dinner by ourselves. The first night of our trip, we stayed in Ogallala, Nebraska, not far from the largest Dairy Farm I have ever seen (before or since); man did it stink! That night, we brought Grandpa home a "surprise" from dinner. I don't remember what it was, but it was probably a dessert of some kind. Well, we found out the next night how much he enjoyed/appreciated our "surprise" because after checking into the motel in Iowa (a Super 8 in, I forget which town), Jody and I went back to the hotel to get something we had forgotten, upon which Grandpa pulled out his wallet, handed us a Ben Franklin ($100 bill, which was a LOT of money to a kid and a teenager in 1991) and said to us, "Will you get me a surprise? Maybe bring me back a piece of pie?" We thought that was one of the funniest things we had ever heard! Asking for a piece of pie and giving us a $100 bill to buy it with. I think we were both tempted to ask if we could "keep the change," but we didn't have the heart to do that to Grandpa, so we just got him his piece of pie and returned the balance of the money to him afterward. He was very grateful for his "surprise." As I recall this memory nearly 30 years later, I see now that the memory itself is worth far more than all that change would have been. This was one of many experiences us grandkids had that gave us insight into our Grandpa Ned's thoroughly authentic and one-of-a-kind sense of humor. We cherish that humor, and the memories even more so.

Ned Adams Jensen was born on 22 Apr 1918
Ned Adams Jensen was 11 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
