Grandpa Joe (and little Cousin Emily Ann):
Grandpa Joe (Ann Marie’s husband) enjoys reading stories to his grandchildren. The holidays with the gathered extended family gives Joe many occasions to revive his well-worn jokes (to the family’s dismay).
Joe is fond of moustache wax, pocket watches, and his comfy purple house slippers. He adores his wife, her cooking, and the big beautiful family they helped grow.
Cousin Emily Ann is just learning to read. She is also trying to learn not to drool on the pages…
