Guiding Hand

My son, (18) working with his Grandfather, my Father-in-Law (74). The firm hand of experience guides the novice carpenter with love and pride.

That's such a lovely photo, and I read your words on your other site. Yes, indeed, David will treasure those moments. My (13 yr old) son lost his grandad last year - my dad. The last time they saw each other they played chess, which his grandad had taught him, and it was one of the last remaining things he could do. (Must admit I got a tiny bit teary reading your words)

I read the story and looked at the photos. It is a good story and the photos are very nice too. The new gate looks great.

So many children and even grandchildren do not really "know" their grandparents. This story is the way those relationships should be.

I rolled on the floor, puked, screamed, and passed out. When I woke up the neighbor was gone.

An excellent metaphor you provide us today with this photo.

This shot is full of emotion. I think hands can be so expresive. Grandpa and grandson pictures are such good memory builders.
