Thanks for this picture of a fine man. Aren't memories wonderful. I loved your descriptions, especailly about the echo within the cement and wood.

I'd like to hear some of the "George Kapufka" stories. :) You've painted a great picture of your grandpa with this. I liked everything except the decapitating of the ants. :) In light of that thought (regarding the squirrel), at first I thought he intentionally hit the gas to try to run over the squirrel, and was relieved to find that was not the case. You have great memories of this man who sat on the porch.
Fabulous Story. Your Grandfather sounds like a gem. Good Writing. I hope it makes the top 40!

Great memories! Thanks so much for sharing them!
What wonderful memories you have. I'm sure that it is difficult at times to drive by the old house and think about him no longer being there, but this story is an excellent way of preserving those cherished emmories.

You should print this out and share it with your family. Give them something to rememebr this great man for years to come. :)
