Grandpa’s Shirt

Grandpa’s Shirt

I went through Rhett’s closet and I picked out a cool cowboy shirt from him. Then I saw a 1970’s cowboy shirt that had belonged to my grandpa who passed away in 1989. Rhett saw the shirt of my grandpa in my closet in 2007 and asked if he could have it. I never told him that the shirt was really special to me as I could see how much he liked it. Today, over 10 years later, I saw the shirt in his closet. I asked him, “Is that the shirt I gave…” Before I even finished he said, “Yeah.” I told him that it was my grandpa’s and asked him if I could have it back. He told me to take it with me and apologized as the shirt is thin from so many wears over the past 10 years. He said he thinks that shirt has been in over 100 rodeos, on over 100 broncs. It is pretty awesome that my grandpa’s shirt from the 1970’s, a shirt I have not seen for 10 years, has constantly been a rodeo star shirt on my superstar pal.
