Sorry-dines and Jack Mackerel!

My oldest nephew Hunter learned to eat sardines, or as he called them "Sorry-dines" from his paternal grandfather. He and his grandfather Jack would sit and munch on sardines for snacks all of the time. This "yakked" my brother out. He could not stand the smell of sardines and when Hunter was munching on them at home he had to sit outside on the front porch. Imagine sending a baby of three or so to sit on the front porch so he could eat sardines. I don't know WHAT my brother was thinking. I just probably wouldn't have let him eat sardines at home in the first place, I would have explained they were a special snack to be eaten with grandpa Jack. That would have been the end of sardines stinking up my house.

One night many years ago my brother was fixing a sink at Grandpa Jack's, while Nick was plumbing (this is what he did for a living), Hunter and Grandpa Jack were eating Jack Mackerel. Talk about STINK I could smell sardines all day long to keep from ever smelling Jack Mackerel. That stuff is so rank that I won't even feed it to my cats OUTSIDE. Pee-yew! Anyway, after chowing down on the Jack Mackerel, Hunter climbed in under the sink cabinet, gets in Nick's face and says with very baited breath, "Do you want some Jack Mackerel?" Nick almost barfed...he was trapped under the sink with Hunter's stinking breath and couldn't get him out fast enough. He told the boy in no uncertain terms that he did not want any Jack Mackerel and to get his stinking breath out from under that sink, NOW!

These have been some of my favorite stories about my brother and his son Hunter. I never get tired of hearing them.

Ciao!

Mer, I was laughing so hard when I typed it that I had tears in my eyes. Hearing my brother tell the story is a hoot.

Hugs,
