My Grandfather

When I was a kid I would frequently visit my grandparents.  I absolutely loved going upstate and stay with them.  It was such a dramatic change from the lifestyle I lived at home.  Plus as most grandparents do, I was spoiled.  Spoiled in my family’s case was the occasional McDonalds and Entenmann's cinnamon rolls in the morning.  My grandparents lived on an cattle farm and at some point late in my childhood the cattle farm closed and my grandparents retired.  My grandparents bought a place upstate and started the retired life.  At some point during my many visits to the house, I noticed my grandfather would eat a bowl of ice cream every evening.  At one point I decided to ask my grandfather why he ate a bowl of ice cream each night.  He said simply “Why Not?”  That always stuck out in my mind.
