A YOUNG MAN’S ADMIRATION
My grandfather is a very wise and interesting man. His name is Tom Angel. My grandpa has a medium build. He is about 6’0 feet tall and weighs 180 pounds. He has a baldhead and blue eyes.

I remember when grandpa used to have to carry me into the woods squirrel hunting. He has shared his fishing skills with me too. Introducing me to the outdoors is one of the greatest things that he has ever done for me. It has probably kept me out of a lot of trouble. I can never thank him enough for this.
My grandpa is also a very excellent farmer. If it is...
