Here are the only grandparents I ever knew, Lucy May (Hopkins) & Hugh Robert Etter. I can tell you that I learned almost all my "technical" skills from helping Bo, as we called him. He lost his legs in a hunting accident and I was his legs lots of times because his "stumps" hurt. I'll never forget how he taught me to drive a standard car. Mine needed something done on it and so he brought a car to Gabriel's, where I worked, and left me the keys. When I went out after work and got in it...I discovered it was a STANDARD!!! I learned to drive one that very day! Another time we were at the lake and in a panel van...a standard with a long stick shift and lots of gears and he told me to pull it right down to the waters edge. Talk about scared! I did it though. Bo lost some of his fingers, too. His disability never stopped him from doing a task. He did plumbing, electrical, yard, all that stuff. I remember him teaching me the right way to do so many things... I think it was not so much doing it a particular way that stuck with me but that there is a right way to do every job. Cranny, as we called my grandmother lived a very hard life. My grandfather was a recovering alcoholic. If you have ever dealt with this illness, you know her pain. On top of that they had little money to start out on. She was a courageous lady. She made her life good. It really is all about your faith and your attitude! My grandmother was the very hardest working woman I have ever known. I saw her carry things and load things for trips, cook, carry laundry to the laundry house outside until her death. She never had anything that I would call a luxury...but she was full of beauty & grace & creativity. My do it myself attitude comes from her. I am thankful to God for allowing me my time I had with Cranny & Bo!!! Who made a difference in your life?
