This has nothing to do with clusters but I'll tell it anyway.My grandfather (Grandpa) was always dispensing useful advice. He'd say things like "Never climb a black walnut tree. You'll just tear your hide off and the nuts are too damn hard to crack." My favorite Grandpa advice was "Never date a women with big hands."Grandpa was also very friendly. One of his favorite activities was to be up early in the morning and set in his rocker on the front porch. He liked to greet the neighbors as they would come out to get the paper or go off to work.He would jump from his chair and step to the porch railing and wave as the neighbors came by."Good Morning Mrs. Chamberpot!" he'd call to the lady next door."Good to see ya Miss Doohinkey." he'd say as she passed."Hello Mrs. Pushbroom, how's the gout?" he'd call out.About this time the screen door would open with a bang and Grandma would yell "WALTER!"I guess his name was Walter, I really don't know. Grandma called him Walter. My mom called him Dad. My brothers and me called him Grandpa. I don't know what his name was. "WALTER!" Grandma would yell. "Get in the house right now and and get your clothes on!"
