    Re: Game: Things in Common

    Name 10 things you remember about your grandfather:
    1. His voice and accent
    2. He was very tall and handsome.
    3. His anchor tattoo (he was in the Navy; back then, the only acceptable tattoos were on men who had servedin the military)
    4. His meticulous mustache, his soft eyes, the way he would say, "You like?" and the great amount of respect and admiration he earned because of his work ethics (my Grandpa was the best )
    5. He would buy 7 pairs of tall rubber boots every year for all the grandchildren so we could go wading in the creek behind their house.
    6. His respect for his religion so much so that his books were buried with him.
    7. It was his job to carve the turkey at Thanksgiving and if you tried to steal a piece while he was carving he would threaten you (JK of course) with the knife.
    8. While it was my grandmother who pushed for the education of all their kids, he always took credit for how well they did in life.
    9. He loved to fish and would sometimes fish very early in the morning, bring the catch home, and my grandmother would cook up a big fish breakfast.
    10. His vineyard......he had all 24 of us grandkids picking the grapes and we loved it.
