Paul was just 5 years old when his grandpa was age 64, yet they were the best of pals. They frequently spent quality time with one another and often went on adventures into the real world of a small Illinois town. Retired, Paul’s grandpa was going thru a phase in his life where he had time. He had gone through two terrible wars, a financial depression, & supported his nuclear family, as well as his own family. Now it was his time. He invested that time with his young grandson: Steam tractors, building things, demonstrating honesty & humility, as well as chuckling while drawing silly cartoons. “That’s NOT the man I grew up with,” commented Paul’s mom. So what happened? How did this once stoic, serious & stern man transition into such an Irreplaceable part of Paul’s life?
We retell ife's stories that helped us become who we are now. The stories can be quite funny, ironic, as well as painful. The human spirit fights to succeed, while at the same time, we try our best to keep adding day to day value to our lives. When we take that story-step backward, we often rediscover the humor, love and sometimes we even find needed closure we once overlooked. There is more to life than the day to day. Life passes by quickly & sometimes it’s hard to let the past go. So, with humor and optimism we present this podcast.
