Gramps

Sitting in his row-boat in the New York harbor we watched the Coast Guard cruiser speed past us  bouncing in its wake.

“At this distance Lady Liberty looks like she’s been put on a shelf with some kid’s toys.” he said.
“Some of those things look like over-sized giraffes.”
“They do call it the asphalt jungle.”
“Be neat to have dynamite like Crocodile Dundee, heh gramps?”
“Nah, better line, tackle and bait, Jamie.  Here, have a sandwich!”

That night Gramps got me home late.

“See you tomorrow Gramps!”

It was our last fishing trip, he passed away in his sleep.
