Our Grandpa has so many odd habits from the old country. Mostly they are just weird, but a few are truly disgusting. Like cracking snail shells with his teeth, and swallowing them down! 

He used to spit the shells out on the carpet, but now he has a little galvanized bucket next to his recliner. Well, time to go, don’t get up! We elbow air  bump––no big kisses for me thanks.
