Hunting With Grandpa

A boy grows up to be 
a man....

a man to be proud of...

a man of strength and dignity ~
like his father and his father before him...

each man has different
trials and tribulations
but, each man
strives for the same thing...

to carry out the tradition
and make his grandfather proud!

 What better
time or place
 to learn the lessons
than on a hunt with 
the masters,
the legends,
the dads,the uncles,
 and the grandfathers....

This year our friend's grandson, Hank,
watched the hunt from the truck
and tagged along with the hunting party.

With his toy shotgun,
he tagged along beside his 
parents, uncle and aunt,
and Grandpa...
an annual event for this hunting family.

Mom and Dad took turns watching
 the baby in the suburban...
while the other walked a field....

and lucky little Hank 
could hang out with Grandpa....

Hunting with Grandpa is a special time!

A Boy Needs A Grandpa
Author: Unknown

A boy needs a Grandpa...
For man-to-man talks,
To go hand in hand
On Conpanionable walks,

To fix up his toys
When they no longer go,
To tell him the things
Little boys want to know.

A boy needs a Grandpa...
To show him the way
To handle a puppy, 
To teach him fair play.

To impart bits of wisdom
He's learned through the years,
That it's no disgrace
For a man to shed tears.

A boy needs a Grandpa...
To sit on his lap
And if no one is loooking,
They take a wee nap,

Each wrapped in an aura
Of love and esteem,
Each smiling gently
At some special dream.

Happy Hunting!
