I have always been an enterprising person. My first job was when I was about 3 and a half. After dinner I would sit in the back of my Grandpa's recliner and scratch his back with his comb. We would watch westerns together. When I was done I would get a quarter and that was my ice cream money. Every evening round about 6 ish the Good Humor man would start down our street. Back then a quarter could buy a lot of ice cream. Sometimes Grandpa would come out and get an ice cream cone and we'd sit on the front stoop and see who could make it last the longest. I always lost, but I didn't mind, it was just fun doing it together. I really do miss my Grandpa a lot. He was the only male figure in my life until I was about 9.
