Pawpaw loved to play croquet, so all the adults would set up a croquet set in the yard and they would play for hours.
As a little boy I would get bored and try to pull up the hoops. Pawpaw would yell at me. He had this distinct and authoritative tone that would frighten me. Of course, I knew even then that I deserved the scolding.
