“Grandson Makes Grandma’s Day”
“YOU heard that “JOKERS ARE WILD” – –
Well … what do you think of this “JOKER” – – –
that, I am standing right… next to?”
Several years ago, when at work, I was bragging to some of my fellow workers and also showing to them the “prize” that I had just won, and I am thanking the “LORD” above… for giving to me, such a wonderful and talented grandson!
My grandson, Alan Aldrich has such good ideas, when it comes to me asking him, to put on paper, something I have in my brain and I am describing these thoughts, and expecting for him to show to me… my thoughts in drawings?
He does just that!
Then… also, in my case we have to think up… just the right words to make these drawings come alive!
“A terrific slogan – words with pictures – is what I am after.”
All of this is for another “Contest” at my work place… as Alan has helped me to be… one of their many “Winners!”
The gal, in the cubicle next to mine, is Jane Amati, and she came over to my cubicle … just wanting to find out… if I could get my grandson, Alan to make a “Court Jester” … and also… just maybe make it… at least 6-foot tall, to hang on one of the pillars in our section?
And the best part of all of this is, that … she would buy and bring all the necessary materials to make this project… to me at work … even the very large sheets of the construction paper, if Alan … could and or would?
Also, the “Court Jester” had to have one of those three-pointed type headpieces.
This is something that Jane told me about in great detail… in as much… as that this alone… would make our “Court Jester” the top drawing attraction in our section at work!
Alan said he would try, and he made some rough drawings to see what I thought, and they looked very good to me… so we started to work on it, time flying and it was getting late… and I would have to leave early in the morning for work … I mostly looked at what Alan was doing… as I am not a very creative type person… and so, I just left Alan in charge of what he was doing… and so, I must now leave Alan, on his on, just hoping for the best of projects, to be ready in the morning… I hurried on up the stairs … and then … to just go, right to bed.
The next morning , there “It” was, the project all wrapped up… and all ready to go to work!
Jane could hardly believe her eyes… that Alan was so able to get “It” all done!
So we started to hang “It” on the entrance pillar… on the isle of our section at work and for the next couple of days, more workers in our section, were bringing their own and some other goodies to hang.
With the “Court Jester” in full color, and with movable parts, our isle at work looked like “Bourbon St., New Orleans – Mardi Gras ” style!
The “Court Jester” looked so extra special… we just had to leave “It” up, for months and months… as all of the other departments were now sending people over to have their picture taken with Alan’s, “Court Jester!”
