Today I’m going to be spending the day with my father and grandfather. One of my grandfather’s wishes before he dies is to visit all of the places he has lived and worked over his 98 years. Today we’re going to visit his old Seattle homes together.
Last time I wrote about my grandfather, several people were interested in asking him questions and wanting to know more from someone who has lived a century. So…
Ask Grandpa Joe!
What would you like to know? If you had someone who was 98 in your life, what would you want to ask him? Let me know now!
To give you some context, he is incredibly smart, has traveled the world, he still has a great head for business (he had several careers, including starting up a regional banking system), and he has an incredible green thumb. I’ve written about him quite a bit here – you can learn more about him by perusing those articles.
I will check my emails today (I have to monitor my work emails), so I’ll receive your questions and ask them. Don’t worry about bothering us on our special day. Believe me, he will be touched and happily overwhelmed with your kindness and curiosity.
UPDATE: Since there weren’t many questions until late in the day, I decided to hold off until there were more to ask. So keep asking! I will be seeing my grandfather soon for lunch, and will ask them all at once.
