every week, i look forward to a letter from my granddad. he updates the family on his and grandma's adventures. he recently retired so it's fun to learn how he occupies his time. he's quite the craftsman and woodworker! with many tools he builds. he's a great teacher too! from him, i learned how to properly crack an egg, a very important skill, i may add. his letters are like reading a blog, but more tangible. most of all, they remind me of the pacific northwest, the home i love.
