Saying Goodbye to a Great Man: Grampa Passes at Age 90

This last week was spent saying my goodbyes to my Grampa Roger W. Eastman, he passed away at age 90 just about a month shy of turning 91 years of age. This is a man who was in WWII, was on a school board, part of the VT farming bureau and so much more. This man did so many things and what I learned at his funeral was that he was a man who loved food. One tidbit of information shared at his funeral was that he was a man who loved food to the point that he would choose […]

Yes, This is my Child … Mister K

This child of mine, the youngest, is always up to something. Shown here, is my son after a ride home from his Grampa’s. Some how between stealing my pocket book to take all of my Trident gum and singing along to our favorite tunes on the radio for our twenty minute trip back home … he captured a pink highlighter. This highlighter is what he added to his already messy, chocolate ice cream face … Imagine my surprise when we pulled into the driveway to our house and I look to see him like this? I just couldn’t help but […]

My Grampa is Getting Older

My Grampa on my Dad’s side is 90 or close to it, maybe even in his early 90’s, honestly I am not quite sure his age but I am quite sure that he is at an age where he should be sitting back, relaxing and enjoying these last years of his life. While I will be super sad when my Grampa does pass because I love him dearly, he has lived a super long life and done so much. My Grampa is the one who taught me how to play solitaire and even took out the little kids section of […]

Retail Display Racks May Suit Farm Stand

As I have mentioned I have been heading over a couple of times a week to assist my Dad at the farm stand, but what I did not mention is that the farm stand is more of a stand combined with the option of making it into a cute local craft, product store too. Meaning that this is a great location to support local woodcrafters and others who make beautiful products locally. I could totally see using Retail Displays within the building to sell various items made from local business owners or hobbyist. Many who have a hobby are pretty […]

This is How We Rock Father’s Day

We pack the kids up to head to Vermont where our family farm is to spend the day with Dad aka Grampa. Hop in the pool immediately upon arrival… Find a brother-in-law shark swimming around in the pool and rather than be scared laugh your butt off because you think it’s hilarious. Then you get out of the pool, dry off and get some great conversations in with your family. While you watch your father cook dinner with music in the background and wonderful entertainment for that is what your Dad is good for always! Then you all sit down […]
