"Grandpa was a powerfully built man, who once worked finishing train cars for Pullman, and was an amateur boxer who went in for prizefighting at White City, an amusement park that used to stand at 63rd Street and South Park Avenue on Chicago’s South Side. At least he used to box, until some beer-drinking buddies dared him to show his strength by breaking a rope tied around his bicep. He broke that rope, but also busted his bicep."

NotesBy the time I came on the scene, Grandpa was kinda cranky, walked with a cane, and didn’t have much time for the girls in the grandkids bunch. But he loved pitting my boy cousins against one another in wrestling matches. And he did take us to the park, where he terrified us with tales of the Buhmann (bogeyman) who would grab us if we strayed out of his sight lines—a clever strategy to keep us from running off.
