Gift Ideas for My Grandfather
I am trying to think of good gift ideas to get for my grandfather, because his 80th birthday is coming up, and I want to get something special for him. It does not need to be an expensive present, or anything like that, but I would like for it to be a meaningful present, or at least as meaningful of a present as I can muster. I am hoping that it is something nice, and one of the things that I was looking at is vintage trucker hats because my grandfather used to be a trucker.
I think he was a trucker for a lot of my childhood, becuase I remember him being away for long periods of time, and I would not see him that often. It is hard to remember exactly when he retired, but I know that it was a long time ago. My grandfather had a few jobs over the course of his life, and I am glad to have had him in my life, because he is a great man. I think that the first thing he did was that he joined the marines, and I think he left the service after completing his four years. He was lucky enough to enlist at a time period between WWII and the Korean war, so that he did not have to do any active duty.
After that, he was a farmer for a number of years, which is what his father was before him, and his father’s father as well. But I guess at some point, he decided that wasn’t a good enough living, and moved away from his home state to start out a life as a trucker. I know that he enjoyed his days as a trucker, even if it was kind of hard work.
