We'll miss you, Grandpa Chuck

He wasn't known for his culinary prowess, but you might believe so after viewing this picture -- it's one of my favorites. What he did pass down, though, was a love for photography -- the same love that both my mom and I share. In fact, he probably developed this in his home dark room. It was the same spot where I spent countless hours building model ships at the butt crack of dawn and marveling at how someone could smoke a pipe without wearing any teeth. Well, dagnabit, he sure knew how to have a good time. Missing you, Grandpa.


  1. What a cool way to remember him. Thanks for sharing.

  2. karoline,
    You have a great way of summing up the essence of who your grandpa was and how you have taken just a little of who he was for your very own.
    Know we love you lots,
    Maddy and Jerry

  3. thanks to you both. and, maddy, take care of my mom for me. she's lucky to have a friend like you.
