I've told you about my grandpa Carlos before (strip 175), and here we are, sharing one of our favorite beverages, tonic water. I loved to have lunch with him and listen to his stories about his childhood, and after he died I learned about things he did as an adult, and I wish I could talk to him about that. I'd also love to listen to his stories with the perspective and knowledge I've gained since.

He was 83 or almost when he passed, and the other day my uncle and godfather, his last surviving child, turned 80. That really made me think. A lot has happened since my grandpa left us, like me becoming a writer and journalist... among other things, my grandpa was a high school literature teacher, and I'd love to talk about books with him, and have him read what I've written. Or ride a giant flying Mr. T together...

Incidentally, Lisandro's version of my grandpa looks more like my uncle. Too much hair, my bad for not sharing enough references. :> Also, I wonder if my grandpa was even aware of Mr. T's existence. I only remember him watching the news on TV, although he was a movie fan. When he was a teen, he painted signs for the local movie theater in exchange for free tickets, and an as an adult, he bought a film camera and made tons of home movies, from the late 30s to the mid-60s, some of which I have digitalized.

Music this time is The One and Only Mr. T, by Mr. T, from his 1984 EP Mr. T's Commandments:
