Chapter 3 Dad's New Windows

Dad's telling Grandpa and Mel about the new windows he and Ted installed this past week.
"Top of the line aluminum clad double hung windows that tilt inward so Mom will have an easier time wiping them down. I have to say, I really appreciated Ted's help. I'm not as young as I used to be." Dad rumbled.
Tammy has had a busy first week of junior year at college. She's working toward a teaching degree. Mom's been volunteering at the library and hopes there will be a job opening by the time the twins start first grade.

Grandma exclaims, "You young women! In my day we worked until we married, then we worked at making a happy home for our husbands."

Mom and Tammy sigh.............

Upstairs Pepper and Patti are playing quietly with Pepper's new doll. Patti wants to brush her curls. Pepper wants to find a cardboard box and Mom's scrap bag to make the dolly a bed.

Dad's brother sent little Pete and Salty new jerseys and a football.

The boys love going to watch Ted's team play on Friday nights. They know they can make some of the plays that the big boys do. Salty is holding the ball while Pete gets ready to kick.
They've forgotten that Mom tells them not to play with balls in the house.....
They've forgotten that Dad and Ted replaced their bedroom window yesterday.....
