Grandad Timmy Shelton

Chayse Perdue

My grandpa is like a strongly built house. He has strong oak walls, strong cedar floors, and a strong timber roof so no one can tear him down. I love my grandpa with all my heart. My grandpa’s name is Timmy Shelton, but I call him Grandad. I bet if you got to know him, you would love him as much as I do. Grandad teaches me how to be a good contractor. He helps the family. Also, he helps people in the community. My grandpa, Timmy Shelton, deserves the title Kentucky Grandparent of the Year.

Other grandpas would teach their grandchildren how to hunt and fish and other things, but Grandad teaches me that and how to be a good contractor. I remember when I was eight or nine, I was helping Grandad with a job when he said, “You hold the nail between your middle finger and your pointer finger and put them upside down. That way if you miss the nail and hit your finger, it will not hurt as bad.” That not only taught me how to build something, it meant a lot to me because he believed in me. I bet if my Grandad hired you, and you did not know how he does his work, then he would teach you how to do it his way. Therefore, Grandad would be the kind of person you would look up to.

Have you ever had a grandpa do things to help their family? When people in my family are sick, Grandad will bring them chicken noodle soup and other things they can eat. I remember when my little brother, Colt Perdue, was sick and Grandad brought him chicken noodle soup and popsicles. I believe this made my little brother happy. Also, Grandad will work hard to get jobs done so he can get paid and pay the bills for his house and work materials. He works on houses for people in the community when there is something wrong with them so they do not have to leak. In summary, Grandad would probably be the person you would like to help your family.

Grandad also helps people in the community. Grandad builds houses for people sometimes. He would build one for you if you needed one. He builds big and small storage buildings for people in the community. Lastly, Grandad would be willing to help out anyone in the community including you.

Before this paper ends, I just wanted to say even if my grandpa, Timmy Shelton, does not get the title of Kentucky Grandparent of the Year, I will still love him the same. Plus, Grandad will still be the best grandpa in the whole world to me. Grandad teaches me how to be a good contractor, he helps the family, and he helps the community. I love Grandad with all my heart, and I would do anything for him. This is one reason I wrote the grandparent essay over Grandad.
