Greatest Dad, My Granfather

ketchup with us

In 57 words or less, tell us about a story about a great dad 

in your life, fact or fiction.

Life is tough but he was tougher.
Late nights listening to his stories,
until 3 a.m. crept up. Granny long
retired to bed. Only father I needed,
my grandfather taught me more of
life than school could prepare me for.
Taken too soon to see I absorbed
all the values he tried to teach.

  1. He sounds like an amazing man. I, too, would sit for hours listening to my Pa. So many stories, lessons and laughter. What a tender entry. Thanks for linking!

  2. Somehow I just know he sees how well you're doing and what a profound impact he had on your life. Happy Father's Day, Donetta's Grandpa! You sound like somebody I'd like to grab a sandwich with sometime. :)

    Thank for playing today, Donetta.
