Time with Grandfather
I had a grandfather that was more the father figure for me. He was a salesman—he sold tombstones just to make it interesting—but he would always come when he had free time. We’d go fishing together. We were close to the great lakes of Iowa in Dickinson County. He knew all of the people up there, and we’d go up there, and he knew all of the better places to fish. And I kind of grew up in that area appreciating the water, and the camaraderie I had with my grandfather in those places was important to me.
