My Grandfather, although he moved around a lot when he was a kid, grew
up fairly well. He has lived in California, Texas, Wisconsin and many others.
He traveled to many places because of his first career.
Grandpa was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He lived there for the first
three months of his life. He then moved to Texas where he lived in the suburbs
of Dallas. He then moved to California and moved back to Texas to live with his

the police. When the police got there, the baby-sitter was there and said the
owner had taken the trees out. When the police officer found out that a handle
was all that was missing, he gave my grandpa a lecture about only calling the
police in an emergency. He never found the handle. My grandpa liked chorus the
most, and he hated the rest of the classes. He remembers something Mr. Banks, a
math teacher, said to him. "Well Ronnie, it's just a little to little, and a
little to late." He is the most proud of graduating college after twenty years.
He regrets not having a teacher tell him about the importance of education.
