<My memories of Grandpa Oscar

Posted 27 jul 2016 by Ruth Marguerite Patrick

I want to put a few memories here for those who know only his name. Grandpa Oscar was a Chess master, many of my memories of him have to do with playing chess. He would give me a whole team and beat me in about 3 moves with just a king a queen and a pawn [or some such combination] He has a chess board in a box with pegged pieces which he would play chess on with a man in Russia, they sent their moves to each other on postcards, so there was a week or so between moves in the game. One pawn in his chess set had been lost and was replaced by a golf T. Grandpa Oscar always wore a bolo tie with a real scorpion enclosed in resin on the clasp. We used to say he looked like Albert Einstein. He always drank a martini in the evening. When I was a child they lived in an airstream trailer and would travel to Airstream trailer gatherings and one come and visit us every year. They also traveled to Mexico and Guatamala and brought back interesting things for my sisters and I. One time when I was a teenager and they were living in Sun city I went jogging with him around the lake and I got blisters so he let me borrow his socks. He liked to watch TV and I remember sitting on his lap as a little girl and he was watching the Lawrence Welk show and he told me to move a little so he could see the TV becuase he said the only thing he really liked about the show was seeing the pretty girls. When seseme street came out I thought it was really funny that Oscar the Grouch had the same name as My grandpa. A lot of his friends in the southwest called him Manney since Manny was a popular nickname in that region. They had a huge truck to pull the airstream and I have lots of memories of riding in that truck. One time he had found some goards while traveling, and stashed them behind the spare tire on the truck, and he gave them to me. The truck was so wide it was hard to see so my grandma would always tell him if the road was clear on her side. She was so in the habit of this she would do it driving with anyone in any vehichle. He had a stick with a spike on the end and liked to go arround and pick up the litter in whatever trailer park they were staying at.>
