Love Song.

My valentine’s name is Aaron. Some call him “Draplin”. Some call him “Drap”- much to his dismay. You see, the fact that I know this tid-bit counts for something.

Don’t call him Drap, people.

He doesn’t like the holiday so much. It is constructed to encourage people to buy more stuff they don’t need: flowers, candy, cards, pink things, etc. Yeah, yeah, yeah…

However, if there has to be another holiday let it be about love.

Right?

Here’s some inspiring love stuff to fill the lonely seconds of your day——

Start here: ************  From NPR: “A Brother and Sister Gets Married and Their Son Tweets It”.

And finally, a love song. This one’s for you baby:

Grandpa Steve.

These are my grandparents, Hedy and Steve.

God they are beautiful!

My latest project is devoted to my Grandpa Steve. He is no longer with us- but he left quite the impression…

My Grandparents had 15 (!) children- and last count on grandchildren was 28. Grandpa went to U of D, worked for Ford- and was hilarious. THE best, really.

I started this new project (and blog) with the intentions of gathering all the stories, the jokes, the puzzles(!) from my grandpa’s brood-

– and my cousins

and his brothers and sisters…

After all:

I want to dip into the collective heart where my Grandpa resides. There is much to celebrate and much to remember.

So far this is what i’ve got- (Check it out!):  http://stevemckolay.tumblr.com/
