Advent Calendar 2018: Day 23

Advent Calendar – Day 23

Alexander Ignatius Connolly, or Bubba

My maternal grandfather, Bubba, was born on December 23, 1914. Another relative with a December birthday. I wonder how he found that. There are so many memories to touch upon that one post won’t do it justice. I’m happy to say that this gentleman was a driving force of good in my life, and one hell of a storyteller. He used to rivet us with tales of Sean-Sean the Leprechaun, as well as intriguing war stories about his time as a Marine in WWII’s Pacific Engagement with the Japanese. He loved his sports, and his cop shows, but most of all his family. He is sorely missed. I gave my first born son his middle name in honor of his great-grandfather.

Bubba, Merry Christmas wherever you may be.

Getting close to the end of this calendar. Just in case you missed it, here is Advent Calendar Day 22
