Subject: Grandpa's advice

moments like this. The grandson writes...

to reminisce. We used to take long walks and drives together. He would make
special trips to pick me up so I could spend weekends with him.
I was young when he died. If he were living today and sharing his pearls of

beautiful spring day. He told me that one day, I'd find a woman and start my
own family. Then came the jewel in the crown of grandfatherly advice when
he said, "And be sure you marry a woman with small hands."
"Why should I do that, Grandpa?" I asked.
"It makes your pecker look bigger."
It kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?
