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.
