Our next model in Models Among Us is one everyone can relate to.Â He's been around a long, long time and is called different names by different people.Â He is also represented in different ways.Â When we hear the word "Grandfather" ~ most of us think of our parent's father.
My two "grandfathers" have left this world, but the memories I have of them remain alive.Â They both served in the military.Â One smoked a pipe, played various musical instruments, wore a cowboy hat and boots.Â The other was a farmer, fisherman, great story teller, and used wax to roll the ends of his mustache.Â Both were family men, hardworking, and dedicated to those they loved.Â I didn't call either of them "Grandfather" or "Granddaddy".Â They were "Grandpa".
Also when I think of the word Grandfather or Granddaddy, it reminds me of this video, "Grandfather's Song".
Then of course there is Grandfather Mountain located in North Carolina.Â Maybe you have been there.
We can't forget Granddaddy Long Legs and the myth of his deadly venom.
Grandfather clocks are widely known time keepers and grace many homes.
Now that you have some ideas of the new model, let's review the rules.Â There was some confusion with the first challenge and if you aren't sure about something just ask.
