I looked for a picture of my grandfather and I and couldn't find one. My grandfather was 79 years old when I was born. I do remember thinking he was old when I was younger. I remember him being a little grouchy. He wasn't one for hugs or warm fuzzies. At a Fredrick family reunion one year, they did a Fredricks Trivia.

The answer was 'ornery'. (Yikes!!)
