My maternal grandfather was a "rough" guy. Being short, he felt he had to prove himself.

 

But he was a "softie" at heart. He took me fishing, let me play cards with our male relatives, hunt squirrels, teach me how to skin a squirrel, etc.

 

He took my sons fishing, too, when he was very old. I loved him so much.
