My Dad tells me about his Dad

My dad, 4th Generation Paint & Varnish Maker at 92 years young and a bit forgetful just months before he passed.  The kitchen helpers were a husband and wife team that lived in the carriage house.  (Not two girls)  my grandfather cooked and stirred the varnish over an open flame in a big kind of chimney that you would roll the big tub of varnish into and you’d be in there with the smoke that mostly went up the chimney.  But much of it went into my grandfathers lungs.
