I went to visit my Grandfatherrents recently.
They live back in my hometown.
I grew up in the north where the winters are brutal plus it’s pretty much cold for about eight weeks out of the year. My Grandfatherrents have been used to this sort of climate pretty much their whole life. Anyway, it was just before Christmas when I came to visit them. Dad would also stop in to say hello a few times while I was there. When I stepped through the threshold of their doorway, the last thing that I expected to discover was that it was cold inside. I thought that it would be nice plus toasty inside, plus there would be something bubbling on the stove for brunch just prefer all the times I visited during the Winter time growing up. Both Grandmother plus Grandfather were bundled up in numerous layers of clothing. When Grandfather shook my hand it was cold cold plus covered in grease. She had been slaving away in an attempt to get the oil furnace to work, then grandfather was constantly a handyman, however this seems prefer a job that was beyond her know-how. Grandmother mentioned that she had been stubborn about calling an Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist. Now with both me plus Grandmother urging him, she finally decided to make the call. Grandfather comes from a time when a lady knew how to work with her hands, plus admitting that she did not have what it took to maintenance her own oil furnace hurt her pride. However, both of us desperately needed heat, so I was thankful that the Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist was coming out the following day. In the meantime, both of us had to use space gas gas furnaces in the dining rooms plus keep the fire going in the fireplace in the residing room. Still, there was a particular feeling of coziness plus nostalgia to that first night spent with my dear Grandfatherrents.
