Etc. Every morning we wake up, my grandmother has been compiled Pushan; in the evening until we fell asleep, my grandmother also compiled Pushan. In our brothers and sisters among the most loving grandmother that I, a little taste of my grandmother would keep me, give me secretly.A time, I always sat next to her grandmother, watching my grandmother knitting Pushan. One to seedling grandmother first dielectric up, followed by a knife blade on both sides, to a relatively wide width as seedling cleaved.This knife, my grandmother called it “maze” knife sharp tip, behind a thin handle, just like the kind of movie with darts.Then placed in a one and a half meters long, half a meter wide there are on board, grandmother sat on, he starts up compiled. Grandma while eds Pushan, while told me the story and what the Cowherd and the Milky Way with it, the story of Dong sold themselves buried father, ah, over and over again, patiently. One day, my grandmother gave me about the story of Vega, I smiled and said: “Grandma, you are talking about dozens of times, and can not tell me a new story.”Grandma looked at me, smiled and said: ‘Well, I will tell you a story of Ji Gong Cricket fighting’ We listen attentively story, Grandma smiled and said to us after the finish:” You know, Chi Kung hands that the palm-leaf fan, it is where they come from?”We smiled and shook his head does not know, my grandmother told us that the hands of Chi Kung palm-leaf fan, here is the Great Lakes Ma gave her an old woman, Ji Gong for the poor people to do good, the evil, good record straight, an old lady know after deliberately compiled a palm-leaf fan gave him. We dubious, Chi Kung hands obviously the banana leaf Pushan, why Ma said that large seedling series with the Lakers Pushan.Later, I realized, my grandmother said, an expectation, an ideal, kind rewarded, as long as we do something good, people will not forget him. Grandma finished the story, a palm-leaf fan also compiled a good.Then he or she used a thin rope wrapped around the palm fan on an end of a rope hung on the foot, the other end there is a wooden, tightly gripping in his hand, the palm fan around a circle, a pressure below the string, side turn side force, then the Department together, so wrapped up four, then the knife to cut the palm-leaf fan, like Qi, then she picked up a board of ten centimeters square, this board I do not know how many years with her grandmother, Youming and bright, grandmother call it destroyed the board, back and forth above her grandmother in Pushan destroyed several times, own a few fans, smiled and handed it to me. I was a fan in his hand, he said at a few: “fan the wind in my hand, someone to borrow, and so in the dead of winter.”Grandma smiled and said:” The deepest winter, who fan palm-leaf fan, you do not want to lend to people it.”I said:” Yes ah, this is the grandmother knitting too, that they can not lend.”Grandma smiled and said:” Boy, this can be bad, it should be said, was to pick, to the energy in.”I tilted his head asked:” Why?”Grandma said:” give people convenience, their own convenience, do not just think of themselves, but also for others, others will get close to you, you will have a difficult time to help you.”I nodded Sidongfeidong. In the evening, all my grandmother let me sleep with her in a summer when the weather is hot, then there is no electric fan, my grandmother always kept me violently, himself a hot sweat DC.I saw my grandmother’s face sweat and asked: “Grandma, how do you so sweaty, I did not sweat how?”Grandma smiled and said:” Your sweat ah, came to me, so my grandmother sweating.”At that time, I do not understand the meaning of words grandmother, he asked:” Why do I sweat to your body?”Grandma waving palm-leaf fan, while saying:” This is my pass Pushan.”At night, Grandma has been waving palm-leaf fan, until I fell asleep. Pushan are programmed every five same bundle, above and below, put a good quality, called “hijab”.Grandma has never letting go hijab, inside and outside are the same, I asked my grandmother, my grandmother told me: “we can not put into good outside, to deceive people, you lied to the people, who we come here to buy, people first once fooled, fooled a second time and then it can?Man to be real.”So, Grandma series of palm-leaf fan, never got the market and sell it off, people are attracted, the price is cheap, so, Grandma Pushan in short supply. One summer, my grandmother in Taoyuan inside my house, saw a young, hurried went to my house to see Taoyuan house, and I saw my grandmother, but also with the inside.Suddenly, an unpleasant smell got into my nose inside, we see that the young man, is lying on his back on the kang, constantly vomiting.On the ground, the kang, quilts are vomit.Many flies flying around him, her grandmother quickly picked up while driving with palm-leaf fan the flies, while violently him.
