Grandpa's Cane by Sarah Clyde

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

When I was young and Grandpa was still alive, I remember him wheeling around in his wheelchair. He would go into the living room to talk with my parents. He loved to play with us kids. Whenever we came close, he would hook us with his cane around the ankle, or use the end to twist it up in our shirts. He would then he would pull us towards him and give us a dry shave with his whiskered cheeks, or tickled us. We'd get away and try to get around him without getting caught again. My dad, Warren, told me that he got this from my Great Grandpa Savage who had a wooden leg and walked with a cane.

Grandpa & Grandma's house by Sarah Clyde

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Grandma and Grandpa Clyde kept chickens. They would get fresh eggs from the chickens, and the chickens would eat the bugs from Grandma's garden. They also received fresh produce from every place. They had a great food collection that extended from Idaho to Southern California. Grandma Clyde had a cousin that would bring them big sacks of potatoes from Rupert, Idaho every year. They would get mutton and citrus fruits from my Aunt Marietta in Escondido, California. Their house had a big garden and orchard that provided berries, corn, tomatoes, and fruits of all kinds. They kept beef cows and sheep in the pasture below the house. Grandpa had a big orange tractor he used to do the work around the house. My father Warren, who was the youngest, always tells us that as soon as he left the house to go on a mission Grandpa bought the tractor to do the work he had to do by hand. He felt it was unfair. Grandpa would take us grandkids on rides all around the garden on his tractor. Grandma has a beautiful rose garden. She loved her roses and took good care of them. She also had a flower garden behind the house that she grew many types of flowers. Our favorite was the snapdragons. She would let us pick a bud and make the mouth open and close. I also remember Grandpa having an old three wheeled Honda that we called Big Red. He would use this to drive down to the pasture to check on the animals and the irrigation. We would ride behind, bouncing all the way down. When Big Red died, he replaced it with a John Deer Gator. There was more room to ride in that, and he continued to give us rides. My father, Warren, received the Gator after my Grandpa died. We still use it to give rides to the neighbor kids and our own cousins.

Grandma and Grandpa's Waterpark by Sarah Clyde

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

My Grandparents would irrigate their property each summer. This turned their yard into a big Waterpark. They had a hill that we used as a slip and slide. The bottom of backyard would fill up and we used it as a swimming/ wading pool. I remember it being up to my waist, though I was much smaller then. In the garden, there were concrete gutters to take the water to the different parts of the garden. When my father, Warren, was young, he and his friends and siblings would slide down those gutters at full speed. They would get covered in algae and be slippery. The problem happened when the algae wore down with all then sliding, that's when they would lose a layer of skin.

The big swing at Grandpa's house

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Grandma and Grandpa Clyde had a large swing in the back yard. It was made of steel pipe that grandpa either had made, or made himself. It sat under a large tree. It was one of the best things at their house. My dad, Warren, Uncle Dale and Uncle Steve, would push all of us on the swing. Dad would push us so high, we could touch the leaves of the tree with our toes. If he could no longer reach to push our backs, he would grab our legs as we came down and pull! We would get so high, that instead of swinging back, we would drop straight down a bit before swinging backwards. He would push us until we would scream No Higher! Dad would also help twist us up in the swing and let us go. We'd spin and spin until super dizzy. He would also play the game where we would swing up, tap him with our feet, and he'd fall back like we'd hit him hard.
