When I was a little kid I used to like to go to my Great Grandparent’s home on my Mothers side of the family, the Mahoneys. My great Grandmother always made me real hot cocoa with marshmallows on top and always had a plate of cookies for me to devour. My Great Grandfather had been a Railroad Engineer and there were model trains all over the house. Whenever I went to look at the trains he’d yell things like “There’s a little thief in the house watch him! He is going to steal something!” I always thought he was joking around until I grew up and found out who I was and how my Mother’s side of the family really felt about my Father’s side of the family. It did not matter that my Dad and his brothers were born in the States and served in the Military during WW2. I felt a little weird around my Great Grandfather calling me a thief all the time though I thought he was joking, it bothered me a little. My Great Grandmother never treated me any different she loved me up every time she saw me. I especially loved going to their house in the Wintertime, coming home from school walking in the snow. I always got wet and when I’d stop in she’d take off my shoes and socks put my shoes in the oven and my socks on the heater then she’d give me a pair of Great Grandads thick warm 100 percent cotton socks he really yelled then. Out came the Hot Chocolate marshmallows and cookies I would spend hours with them after school usually my Mom would come and pick me up and we’d stop at my GrandParents house just down the street from the Great Grandparents. Bommy my GrandMother always had candy dishes all over the house filled with different flavors of Brach’s candy I’d grab handfuls of the warped ones and stick them in my pockets and then head into the basement where there was a fridge stocked with beer, wine, and soda pop I always grabbed the Root Beer my drug of choice at the time. My Great Grandfather was the only Grandparent to show a little bit of his racist side though when I was young I did not understand racism all my other Grandparents loved me and never let me see that side of them. My Great, Great Grandfather was in the Civil War as a Yankee and was one of many in the Civil War Awarded the Medal of Honor. My cousin has a statement awarding him 12 Cents a month after he left the Military. 12 Cents a month I wonder what it bought then. Maybe it bought my Great Grandfather home from the hospital he was born in 1873. I might have taken him back for a refund. Just Scattered thoughts going through my head…HERE IS YOUR SCANNER REPORTS..
