Grandfather, Noble, was a child once. What kind of child with his long locks and impish smile I wonder. I know he was the curious sort; because he was when I knew him as an older man, and it is not the sort of trait you lose. He always had Scientific America magazine in the bathroom and tinkered with his own experiments: growing a huge tomato plant or placing peanut butter crackers on the window sill to see how the squirrels would react (in very funny ways, I remember). I am not positive but I think he would have thought long-legged Texas flies beautiful.
