Christmas with Grandpa

Christmas with Grandpa
Grandpa Crumpler lived to be 92 years old.

I grew up on a farm in Sampson County. Nine people lived in our house, including my Grandpa Crumpler. My Grandpa sat in a chair at the end of a cotton row as I picked cotton beside him in a 10-pound flour sack.

At Christmas, his children would bring him a lot of fruit. He would peel the oranges and share with us grandchildren. He put the peelings on the windowsill to dry. After the peels dried, we would then eat the peelings. My Grandpa lived to be 92 years old.
