My grandparents raised me and once they gave me a Radio Flyer wagon. It actually was for my grandmother and myself. You see she grew bachelor buttons by the thousands and sold them to a local florist. Since we didn't have a car she and I would take the flowers by "our" Radio Flyer to deliver them. This happened every Saturday morning for as long as the season lasted. I still have fond memories of delivering flowers. I later became a floral designer.

When I think about Radio Flyer, I automatically think of my maternal grandparents, whom my three sisters and I called Gammy and Granddaddy. While my parents always had fun things at their own house, when we went to Gammy and Granddaddy's house (which was right next door and basically an extension of our own home), they always had the BEST toys, including a Radio Flyer wagon! We would take it up, down, right, left, and ALL over my grandparents' property! We LOVED it! I think Granddaddy may have even used it after we finished another favorite with them--FISHING in their pond! I think he used that to throw the slimy fish guts into after he cleaned our days' treasures, to get them ready for Gammy to cook up for us girls!
