My Dad's brother.
Uncle Jim never married,but stayed with and took care of his parents until they died. He was a great craftsman (but didn't reap the profits like he should have). I remember a couple of rocking chairs that he made that were wonderful. I'm sure he made whatever furniture they needed.
He also repaired furniture for others.
He had a few cats...but I remember one that was deaf, and Uncle Jim would have lots of fun shining a flashlight and watching the cat chase the spot of light. He also had a big rooster that he named "Preacher" because the rooster stood straight (instead of 'bent' over the feet).That old rooster would follow him all around the yard.
There was a big square area of the yard at the side of the house which Uncle Jim kept free of grass for playing Croquet. And at Christmas,(at nighttime),the men would take an old ball of rags (about like a basketball),soak it in kerosene,light it and stand in a circle and toss it to each other..(Hot Potato style). The kids weren't allowed to play that one, so he had a beach ball (played the same) that everybody could play.(I got my nose hit a lot).The object of the game was to keep the ball in the air.
Then..just out from the front porch...there was the "Pitch Washers" spot. It consisted of three potted meat cans buried to the rim, spaced so far apart, with each 'hole' worth a different number...then three more cans at a distance from those (like horse shoes). He used washers that would fit comfortably in the cans.
It was always fun at Grandma's house...if there was other family there to play with!
