Day 30 - A picture of someone you miss.
Lately, I have been missing my Grandpa Howard. My grandpa handmade instruments. He made a few guitars and two mandolins, but he made several fiddles. My boyfriend loves music and playing string instruments. My parents gave my boyfriend a mandolin and guitar that my grandpa made. Before my boyfriend started playing them, they were just sitting in a closet at my parents’ house.
My boyfriend loves music including bluegrass, blues and everything else. My grandpa would have really enjoyed talking to my boyfriend and vice versa. I really wish they could have met. I know they would have loved each other. Sometime I joke that my boyfriend would probably have liked my grandpa more than me.
It makes me miss him.
I always remember that he was kind to me and made me laugh. He used to tell me if I didn’t eat my vegetables I would grow hair on my chest. He liked to tell tall tales like that. (That was a little bit of a tongue twister.)
I love you, Grandpa Howard! I know you are watching over me from somewhere!
