Isn't he cute? I love this pic for two reasons:
1.) The ears! 2.) My school pic from that age looks just like this, but in color.
My grandpa was a firefighter in St. Paul, MN,
and when my parents' house burned down two weeks ago
there were guys who showed up who were just coming into the dept.
when he was getting ready to retire. Small world, right?
And here he is as I knew him. The smell of a pipe still makes me think of him.
I hope he's having lots of cake and ice cream in heaven.
Happy birthday, Grandpa!
