Grandpa Abel's people hailed from Lithuania and settled in Paarl, in the Western Cape where he became the mayor. I have only one thing from him which he gave my father who gave it on loan to me - a cupboard we call grandpa's cupboard.
I want to paint it white, but the doc won't let me. My sister has the most wonderful table and chairs that match it. It has the original shelves inside, all different heights and the wood slanting. It's not very practical, but the doc says I must preserve it in its original state. What do you have from grandpa?
