Grandpa Was A Boat Builder

For Monochrome Weekly-

This photo (the only one we have like it) , is of my husbands Grandpa..he was an excellent Portuguese boat builder, oftentimes gambler, painter by trade but built some houses as well. This monkey here was pretty nasty I heard. He wasn't too pleasant with others but loved him. Anyway, this is my submission- hope everyone has a great weekend-

What a fortunate family to be able to keep such memento of a Grandpa and his most cherished possession: Monkey.

I had a pet monkey when I was a little girl. He was nasty to intruders but very kind to us.

I hope someone in the family has kept the heritage of the Grandpa's building skills. Thanks for visiting my blog and following the main. Much appreciated.

I like this. Evokes something very special and respect about family members and relatives.

BTW, belated Happy Bday. Learned about it just last night.

The typhoon was devastating. Still no internet connection, I'm using wireless USB)
Happy a nice day dear friend.
