What are your family work roots?


When I was a little, I liked going to the IGA grocery store in my hometown to look at the signs that told you what was on sale. I was learning how to read and the signs had words with food on them: eggs, butter, sliced bacon and round steak. There were measuring words like bunch, dozen, package, large, loaf. And there were numbers: 4 for 98¢, $1.29 lb, 12 oz. The signs were neat and big and I could understand them. I was also proud of them. Because my grandfather made them. He was the printer who made the signs that everyone saw.
