This weekend I met an elderly gentleman at a nursing home
who inspired this character.


He is a skeptical man who doesn't like change.
He lives in a nursing home because he cannot walk 
and he doesn't want to burden his six children, 
He talks proudly about how accomplished they are
and how much he cherishes his grandchildren.
He's a quiet man, who has a gentle wit,
a distinctive brogue
and a twinkle
in his eye.

Maybe a service dog will come to visit him and bring some joy to his days at the home. We can hope!
