Greatest Dad, My Granfather

‘KETCHUP WITH US’ – PROMPT #20In 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. Thank you very much!! 🙂

  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.

  3. 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!
