  1. Thanks, and I don’t want to muddy it up anymore than that.

  2. Excellent post, Otis. Your story sounds a lot like mine – finding out the truth of a grandfather’s life after his passing. I also posted a write-up on my Grandpa, but it certainly doesn’t compare to yours. Thank you for sharing…

    Thank you.

  4. Sometimes, among all of the blogging and carousing, we need to be reminded that some of us are “writers”.

  5. You told the story about Grandpa that described him best, I’d say.

  6. “Just enough randomness to make it exciting…just enough control to make it beautiful.”

    Never mind that the words themselves are beautiful. The sentiment expressed and described by those words could not have been described better. In his own way, I think your grandpa would’ve approved.

  7. Thanks Otis, great stuff.

  8. Damn. Now that’s writing.

  9. Breathtaking. Well said.

  10. Rock on, Otis. Well done.
