today is my grandpa's birthday
he would have been 84
he really didn't like cats
but he tolerated ours...even to the point of calling,
"...here kitty kitty kitty..."
whenever we would take them to Florida to visit
i can still picture him in his favorite chair
beckoning Churchill and dangling his fingers down
while wearing a shirt that said,
"i like cats, i just can't eat a whole one by myself"
yup, that was my grandpa!
