So, Grandfather decided to properly equip him and bought an old snowshoe, on top of which he mounted a hollow wooden tower with thumbscrews projecting into it, for attaching it to a pogo stick. He put a lifetime guarantee label on it and sent it to Ron, with a return address to Ron’s son-in-law, who owned a local hardware store.
Well, the origin of that enterprise was supposed to remain a mystery but, unfortunately, Grandfather made the shipping box by turning another old box inside-out and neglected to remove its shipping label, now inside, addressed to him.
