Six Sentence Story: Draw

This week's Six Sentence Story prompt is "draw."  My mind first went to drawing a picture, then drawing conclusions, and finally. . . 
Who knew that I would hold fondly the memories of Grandpa drawing a gun on me?  Of course, it wasn't a real gun; just his outstretched finger and thumb.  How this unusual greeting of his got started, I don't remember.  I can picture him now, sitting in his chair, dressed in his denim overalls, and pointing at me as I entered his house.  He always "shot" me with a smile on his face, and I knew he loved me.  I "shot" back, and I think he knew I loved him, too.

    1. My sister remembers once commenting that she had never seen Grandpa wearing anything other than overalls, and the next time they came to visit, he was wearing a suit!

  4. That has to be the sweetest "quick draw" of them all. I can visualize it, and the joy and laughter that ensued. Wonderful memory! It also shows that all things have a light side and a dark side. This was a gesture of love!
