Mini Me and Paw Paw
This is a picture of me at about age 2 "helping" my grandfather (PawPaw) who I adored beyond all reason. It is one of my favorites.
PawPaw would let me do things like stand in the back of his pickup truck as a baby and pull out Kleenex from the box one by one. Just because it was cute. He and I also shared a sweet tooth and would have treats together. I always knew I could find candy in his bedroom. He also made sure that I had any collectible coins that came along. And sometimes, I got to sit outside with him while he smoked his pipe. I guess my version of an ideal man was based on my grandfather. And now that my ideal man has finally come along, I really regret that he will never get to meet PawPaw.
