He must have slept on the couch but it is funny that I do not remember it. You would think that I would remember waking up and finding him there in the morning but I don't. He went on many vacations with us, first to the cabin on Lake Huron and eventually he would go on our camping trips with us. He always had his lawn chair and would sit with us at the beach and often take his afternoon nap.

Every afternoon in the summer, he would sit on the church pew on our porch and before long all the neighborhood kids would come gather on the porch. He would had out fruit stripe gums to all of us. Once the kids realized that he was visiting, it would be a daily event. He would open as many packages as he needed to give all the kids a piece. It always amazed me when he opened a whole box full of gum. It always seemed that when the gum was gone it was time for him to go home.

He always brought us treats from the bakery in Marine City. He always brought a small yellow round loaf of bread. It made the best toast in the morning. I loved it. I do not know it was egg bread or potato bread. It was sweet and quickly became my favorite. He always brought donuts or danish too. He and Mom ate those with coffee.
