Taking things apart…

One of the first remembered experiences Jim told me about was when he was 4 years old.

It was when they moved to the new house in Massillon, OH. If I remember correctly, Jim said that they were looking at the house before buying it, or when they were moving in, he was in the kitchen while everyone else was busy looking at the house or moving things, not sure.

When they came back in the kitchen, Jim had taken all the knobs off the cabinets in the kitchen that he could reach.  Apparently, his parents weren’t impressed with his antics, but as any of us that knew Jim, we could have told them that this was just something he had to do.

Later he would learn to not only take things apart but them put them back together and more often than not, it would work much better after he touched it. 😉

      Thanks Ian. Yes, this is why I want to keep adding these stories. I will continue adding them even after the Memorial on the 18th. But as I can, I will add more before then too. I want to make sure Jim’s memory is kept alive as he always said when he talked about his Mom’s passing and my Dad’s passing, they are never really gone if we keep their memories alive in our hearts.
