Well where to start Granddaddy loved to build furniture and I got to help or just get in the way but he always made me feel like I was helping so I'll go with that. He tricked us (Justin, Charlie, and myself) into cutting the grass aka driving the tractor or riding mower. The thing I think I'll miss the most is the stories he could tell.
