Then Sunday, I went to visit my Grandparents. My Grandfather is dying and it may be the last time I was going to see him. He is 90 and sick! He was a Game Warden in Central Maine for many years, then was hired as the Supervisor for Baxter State Park on Mt Katahdin. He then went to retire from the IRS. In and amongst all those years he was also a Registered Maine Guide and a very avid fly fisherman and tied flies from his youth to the present. He used to build the most incredible canoes!! I was in a corner store one day and was leaving and saw a copy of  ‘The Maine Sportsman’ and I had to take a double take cause my Grandfather was on the cover!!! He was 82, I believe, at the time and I am thinking he had a canoe on his shoulders!! I bought a copy, but have moved way too many times, and regretfully, I don’t have it anymore! He has been quite a pillar in his community and also has belonged to the Masons forever. Last November, he got 4 more military awards, very belated! He is a WW II Vet. It is hard to see an incredible man aging!! It was great to see my Grandparents though! I sure wish they lived closer!!!!!! They are a 6 hour drive one way, so we drove for 12 hours yesterday to visit for a mere 3 hours. Dave took a pic of me with them, wish I could cut out the ‘me’ part, but Dave blew a gasket!

gg

Have a great Monday everyone and call your Grandparents!! Time goes way too fast!!
