The Daily EO: September 24th, 2012

I stopped by to visit my grandpa spontaneously today.  He had just returned from a walk and was sitting on the bench in the sun outside.  We exchanged small talk, but mostly just sat in the sun.  Finally, he decides its time to go in.

His residence has a large number of well maintained gardens in walled off areas featuring bushes, trees, shrubs and flowers.  I noticed as he went to move his walker along the sidewalk to get back in, there was a bit of plant debris gathered there.  I worried about him tripping, and was about to move it when my grandpa reached up and snapped off a small branch of a low hanging branch.

I as stood there gaping at him, Grandpa threw is to the ground and said “I’m helping them trim this tree back. ”

September 24th, 2012 Extra-Ordinary:  Grandpa doesn’t like the tree there, so he is slowly taking care of it.
