He came to the grocery store with me...
as he does on a very rare occasion.
He threw some gum onto the check-out counter...
and explained that he needed to re-stock his supply of treats for the grands.
His trademark treat...
Juicy Fruit gum.
The girl at the check-out smiled...
as she re-counted that her grandpa always had Scotch mints for her when she was a wee thing.
So did mine!
We don't see Scotch mints so much these days.
And that got me thinking.
Do all grandpa's have a favorite sweet to share with their grands?
My Grandpa John Baerg always had Scotch mints in his pocket to share with us.
My other Grandpa John Baerg (yes, I had two)...
carried lifesavers around to dole out to us.
Let's hear about the grandpa treats in your life.
